Get involved in the movement for Charles County's tomorrow.
This year we took an opportunity to herald a new age of leadership to Charles County. More than ever we need leaders who will bring results. That's what my entire life has been about.
As an orphan in the Midwest I went to numerous foster homes. Like too many kids I was surrounded by drugs, crime and poverty. But, this troubled upbringing taught me the need to not only help the less fortunate, but also effect systemic changes so that the less fortunate can help themselves.
As your delegate, I will work my hardest to bring a new tomorrow to Charles County. To get involved in our movement please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Serving Our Country
At the age of 18, I joined the United States Army. The Army allowed me to escape the horrible conditions of my childhood. I learned valuable things in the military. Because, in the army you wake up, you eat, you talk, you sleep, and you die together. The Army also taught me the meaning of community because in the army we are one team. This is the leadership style I would bring with me to Annapolis. In a time of limited budgets and resources, we must speak with one voice to ensure Charles County reaches her full potential.

Working With Our Youth
No matter how far I have come, I think back to my childhood. As a prosecutor, I see kids like me processed by the criminal justice system eaach and everyday. We have to find ways to reach these kids so that they travel down the right road. For the last few years, I have been traveling throughout the area, speaking with kids in the foster system. I want these kids to know that they are not alone. If I could make it out, they can too. When I get to Annapolis, I am determined to be an advocate for these kids so no one ever has to go through what I went through.
Taking Criminals Off Our Streets
As head of the Community Prosecution Unit in Prince George's County, I worked with the police, community members, churches, local businesses and others to reduce crime. Using our shared resources, we identified crime problems in some of the areas toughest neighborhoods. This team then worked proactively to reduce crime by prosecuting the worst offenders, shutting down drug houses and finding ways to make the area safer. Sometimes this involved increased police patrols or putting up a fence to keep out criminals.
