Del. Levi set to file as candidate for Prince George's County Exec

Del. Gerron S. Levi--vying to become the first female county executive in Prince George's County history--says she will officially toss her hat in the ring Friday by filing as a candidate.

In a statement, Levi said she decided to make her candidacy formal after "consulting with family, friends, constituents and supporters."

"The times really call for extraordinary leadership and my campaign will try to make the case that my demonstrated record and ten-step plan will move the county into a bold, new direction," Levi said. "Prince George's County needs innovative leaders to command the respect and leadership role in the region that it so richly deserves." (See full statement below)

Seeing Delegate Levi work up-close, I can personally say that NO ONE works as tirelessly as she does to fight for those in her district! I don't know where her energy comes from to act on behalf of the people, but the county would benefit for this new kind of leadership. Hopefully people will continue to become engaged actively in their communities and support good candidates.
