Prince George’s county executive candidate Angela Alsobrooks has assured that the African community will not be abandoned as was done in the past and vowed that her administration will be transparent and will support African owned business.
Ms. Alsobrooks made this statement recently with United Brothers Organization (An African Diaspora Group of African Business Owners in PG County), at a meeting in Lanham.
“As State’s Attorney, I made sure my agency worked for the people of Prince George’s County, she said.
“For over ten years in government service, I have consistently delivered quality results at the pace citizens pay for and deserve. If given the opportunity to serve as your county executive, I will always govern with this same sense of urgency.”
“A county executive has a solemn obligation to make government work for citizens. That means running an effective county administration that uses our tax dollars wisely to deliver the services we need, “said Ms. Alsobrooks.
She pledged to open a PG County Executive Office of International and African Diaspora Affairs, the first of its kind, in PG County.
Angela Alsobrooks has over 11 years executive experience running PG County Revenue Authority (4 years) and State’s Attorney (7 years). She was the youngest and first woman to be elected to serve as State’s attorney in 2010. She is known for being “tough on crime” especially in domestic violence and elder abuse cases. Angela Alsobrooks was born & raised in Prince George’s County and currently lives in the county.

“I am excited about Ms .Angela Alsobrooks becoming the new PG County Executive, not just because of her reputation as being tough on crime, State’s Attorney, or her amazing platform of quality education (Pre K – 12), focus on safe communities, job creation and stability for our elders, but the fact that she is proposing to establish an Office of International Relations and African Diaspora Affairs right here in PG County.” Harrison said.
