Prince George's County Barbers Association
On Monday November, 27
, I had the opportunity to meet, and speak with members
of the (PGCBA). Meeting with a room full of entrepreneurs, we addressed many of the common topics that I have seen with small businesses. However one topic that was consistent throughout our conversation was the impact of local business on the dissemination of information in our communities. Local businesses are the backbone of our communities and as such, play a crucial role in educating their patrons about the surrounding neighborhoods and regions. Partnerships with healthcare service providers are a great example of these educational opportunities. These service providers are partnering to not only advocate for healthcare, but attempting to educate our residents on best practices, and ways to maintain good health.

On Tuesday, November 28th, I had the pleasure to show support for our federal representatives, our unions, and our residents with Representatives Anthony Brown, Jamie Raskin, and Jackie Jeter, of Amalgamated Transit Union 689, as they introduced the WMATA Flexible Funding and Safety"
Behnke's Nursery Company
Included with the other small businesses & entrepreneurs, I had the opportunity to take in some seasonal foliage and meet with county residents at Behnke's Nursery Company. My two dear friends and colleagues, Councilwoman Mary Lehman and Delegate Joseline Pena-Melnyk, co- hosted this event along with the wonderful staff at Behnke's. I am extremely proud to have the endorsement of these two incredible women, and am thankful to have had the opportunity to speak with their constituents. Joseline and Mary are both known for delivering upon their promises, and I am very pleased that, like many others, they have recognized me for my actions, and not just my words.
