Pr. George's Council Member Confirms Bid for County Executive

Prince George's County Council member Tony Knotts (D-Temple Hills) has confirmed plans to run for county executive, a seat Jack B. Johnson will leave next year under term limits.

Knotts confirmed his bid in a recent interview with the Prince George's Gazette, and said that, if elected, he plans to focus on school construction, minority business opportunities and working with the state delegation.

"We need to start defining our purpose, what we want Prince George's County to become," Knotts told the Gazette. "We need to actually have the two governments getting together from the first day."

Former state delegate Rushern L. Baker III (D) and council member Samuel H. Dean (D-Mitchellville) have also announced that they are running. State's Attorney Glenn F. Ivey (D) has said he is "considering" running, and county Sheriff Michael Jackson (D) is rumored to be weighing the idea.
