MONIQUE ANDERSON WALKER ANNOUNCES RUN FOR PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY COUNCIL                          

Pledges “A Better District 8 For All Prince Georgian’s”


Fort Washington, MD – Monique Anderson Walker, MSRE, announced her candidacy for District 8 County Council on October 8, 2017, at her childhood home in Fort Washington, MD.“This is a critical time in our District, as it is quickly becoming the economic engine of Prince George’s County,” stated Monique. “District 8 needs a leader with a vision and a proven track record of success to guide that growth for all of our residents. I look forward to continuing to serve as a champion and an advocate for our youth, seniors, veterans, returning citizens as well as our businesses and communities in District 8.


”Monique said once elected, she will focus on better education for all Prince Georgians, improving public safety, and strengthening economic development in District 8. 

 

Monique has spent decades being a devoted servant to communities in Prince George’s County. She passionately appealed to the Prince George’s County School Board for more funding in classrooms, universal pre-K and to keep Friendly High School open. In partnership with Maryland Links Chapter and members of the Maryland General Assembly, Monique organized concerned citizens, community leaders and students to advocate for health and education bills. This effort positively impacted the lives of children in Maryland, resulting in 12 bills including the establishment of a Center for School Safety being passed into law. To better serve our veterans, Monique also negotiated to bring the Veterans Affairs Medical Center to District 8. 


“My serving as District 8 Councilwoman will allow me to build on the successes, partnerships and service that I’ve already established to further benefit our District and County,” stated Monique. “I’m proud of the great work I’ve been able to achieve behind the scenes. But there’s so much more that can be done to solidify District 8 as the prime place to live, work, play and do business. Now’s the time for me to step forward and do just that.”
