Should Prince George's County hire more code enforcement officers? More animal management staff? Should we spend more on roads and sidewalks? Should we spend less on police? More on mental health? Should we increase investments in affordable housing?

If there are items you believe Prince George's County should invest more--or less--in, now is the time to voice your opinions to the County Council. We have been holding in-depth budget work sessions since late March and our final pubic budget hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, May 4, at 5:00 p.m. We will pass the Fiscal Year 2022 budget for July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022 before the end of May.

Prince George's County will also receive more than $175 million in American Recovery Plan funding from the Federal Government. Every municipality will receive several million in direct ARP funding as well. How should Prince George's County invest that money? Please make your voice heard in this process!

In order to speak on May 4, you must complete the sign-up form by 3:00 p.m. on Monday, May 3. The process does take a bit of time so please don't wait until the last minute.

The hearing is virtual, so it's easier than ever to make your voice heard!

Maglev: A Destructive Project
Last weekend the Washington Post published an opinion piece by Council Member Jolene Ivey and me titled, "Prince George’s County won’t stand for the maglev — another destructive project for our people" in which we outlined our opposition to the proposed BWMaglev project.

This project should be concerning to far more than just the residents along the direct alignment. This is an environmental justice issue, which we need everyone to speak out against.

Take Action:
  1. Submit comments to the DEIS in support of the "No Build Option"
  2. Email U.S. Senators Cardin and Van Hollen and your Representative, Hoyer or Brown, and tell them not to support the project with federal dollars.
Free Meals for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities
I am thrilled to distribute boxes of 4 meals to District 3 seniors 60+ and individuals with disabilities of any age again on Friday, May 14, through a partnership with the Department of Social Services.

You must make a reservation even if you have received these meals before.
