The powerful teachers union adds their endorsement to the growing list of organizations supporting Edwards’ run
With all of the craziness brewing next door in our nation’s capital, I believe that we – the people of Prince George’s County – must take control of our destiny.
We have the land, the tools, and the entrepreneurial spirit to bring unlimited opportunity to the County.
However, we need a leader who is willing to take on special interests to modernize our aging infrastructure, move more money into classrooms, and ensure that small and local businesses have the resources they need to bring jobs and opportunities back home.
In this vibrant region, Prince George’s County has the most untapped land for development, state-of-the-art transit and transportation systems, and a diverse and rich culture to help employers recruit and retain top talent. Now, we need our government to be accountable for the needs of all its residents, use innovation to drive our economy forward, and focus our school system on producing a workforce that is ready to succeed in the 21st Century economy.
