For the future of Prince George's County…
Chairman of the Prince George's County Council Jack Johnson certainly his hands full this year. A coalition on the County Council, dubbed the "Gang of Six," have successfully obstructed several pieces of crucial legislation this year and, for this Prince Georgian, enough is enough. The Gang of Six initially blocked the Chairman's plan to save Prince George's Hospital Center from financial ruin. They also raised park and planning taxes without distributing the money to each district. All because they weren't consulted prior to the Chairman's proposals. Is it really necessary to sacrifice decent healthcare and social services for Prince Georgians to placate six people's egos? I, for one, don't think so.
On November 2, the people of Prince George's County have to ability to end these Councilpersons' irresponsible leadership. On the ballot is a proposition for two at-large representatives that would end the Gang of Six's majority. For everyone in Prince George's County, it is imperative that this proposition passes. We can't let the Gang of Six continue to obstruct the passage of legislation that has clear benefits for all Prince Georgians.
People of Prince George's County, please vote FOR Question H, and AGAINST Question F, G, and I.
