Today I officially filed to run for re-election
Updated: Feb 11
Today I was honored and blessed to file the paperwork to officially run for re-election as your Prince George’s County Executive.
The theme of this campaign is Further Together, a spin on a sage African Proverb many of you have heard me quote: “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

In the coming months leading up to the June 28 Primary Election, our campaign will focus on continuing to build on the strides we have made in education, COVID-19 response, improving government services, making our communities safer, and expanding access to quality healthcare. Together, we have been able to accomplish so many great things in our County including:
Investing 2.34 billion to ensure that every student has access to a quality education
Breaking ground on 9 new schools,
Breaking ground on a new behavioral health facility that will provide mental health and addiction care for residents opening in the summer of 2022
Welcoming the new University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center to downtown Largo
Equipping our PGCPD patrol officers with body cameras
Establishing a Gun Intelligence Unit that recovered 1,399 guns from the neighborhoods that experienced the most violent crime
Opening a new American Job Center at National Harbor that will serve 10,000 residents and businesses each year.
I am so excited to kick off my campaign with significant support from voters and from a number of labor unions that represent working families in the region including: Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU Local 689), 1199 SEIU Maryland Division, SEIU Maryland /DC State Council, SEIU Local 400 PG, SEIU Local 722, SEIU NAGE 500, UFCW Local 400, and IBEW Local 639. Join us as we go further together! You can volunteer for the campaign or make a donation to friends of Angela Alsobrooks. Thank you for your incredible support, and I look forward to the journey ahead of us. Yours in service,
Prince George’s County Executive
