State's attorney candidate Alsobrooks gains endorsements
Angela Alsobrooks added more endorsements Wednesday in her bid to become Prince George's County state's attorney.
Former state Sen. Gloria Lawlah, now secretary of Maryland's Department of Aging, and Dels. Anne Healy and Jolene Ivey, said they are backing Alsobrooks, her campaign announced at a news conference.
The current state's attorney, Glenn F. Ivey, also has endorsed her.
Alsobrooks, who served in the prosecutor's office and now heads the Prince George's Revenue Authority, said endorsements have come her way because she has worked for them.
"People recognize a strong work ethic when they see it," she said in a brief telephone interview after the news conference at the county courthouse in Upper Marlboro. "I'm grateful to have so many people here."
She touted her experience as a prosecutor and the administrator of an office whose annual budget -about $11 million a year - is about the size of the office she seeks.
