State's attorney candidate Alsobrooks gains endorsements

Washington Post Editors

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.

Nice. There are apparently a bunch of endorsements going around. Here are a few for Tom Dernoga, my choice for State's Attorney:

"I've known Tom for more than 20 years. He's smart, he's tough, and he listens hard to ordinary citizens."

– Senator Jim Rosapepe

"As mayor of Mount Rainier, and executive director of a domestic violence program in Prince George's County, I need a state's attorney who understands the issues and works with our communities to bring about positive change. Tom Dernoga is responsive and effective. I know I can count on him to work in partnership with our communities."

– Mayor Malinda Miles of Mount Rainier

"Tom Dernoga has shown that he will work to protect the communities and people of Prince George's. He is not afraid to take on the tough issues. He has been willing to fight for enhanced police resources necessary to keep our county and its residents safe. He has protected communities from inappropriate and low quality development. He is honest and listens to his constituents. He will make a superb state's attorney."

– Mayor John Tabori of University Park

"You are definitely an action-oriented community leader. There is no doubt in my mind that you will bring your proven leadership skills and passion to the Office of State's Attorney and surely crackdown on crime that seriously affects our schools and communities. You will definitely build viable partnerships with residents and our communities. Consequently, ALEC has endorsed you and your leadership vision as the next State's Attorney in Prince George's County."

– Dr. Frank Forka
African Leadership Empowerment Council (ALEC)
