Prince George’s County Council Member Jolene Ivey was elected to her first four-year term on the County Council in November 2018. She represents Council District 5, and serves on the Health, Human Services and Public Safety Committee (where she is the Vice-Chair), the Planning, Housing & Economic Development Committee, and the General Assembly Committee. She previously served in Annapolis as a Delegate representing District 47 in the Maryland House of Delegates, and as Chair of the Prince George’s County House Delegation she led the fight to correct a state education funding formula. As a result, approximately 20 million additional dollars come to the County’s public schools every year. When she was Chair of the Joint Committee on Children, Youth and Families in Annapolis, Delegate Ivey led the effort to address and fix a disparity in funding going to Prince George's County for the Home Visiting Program, succeeding in ensuring that the county received its fair share. A former broadcast journalist with a Master’s Degree in Journalism from the University of Maryland, Council Member Ivey was a co-founder of Mocha Moms, a support group for at-home mothers of color, and helped grow it into a national organization. Council Member Ivey was named one of the Daily Record’s Top 100 Women of Maryland in 2016 and was the recipient of the Maryland State NAACP’s Kweisi Mfume Excellence in Advocacy Award. Among Council Member Ivey’s priorities on the County Council are children and their families, the fight for environmental justice, and making sure the residents of Prince George's County and District 5 receive speedy, effective, and courteous services from the County Government. She and her husband, former State's Attorney for Prince George’s County Glenn F. Ivey, have five sons. Council Member Ivey is also step-mother to Glenn’s daughter.
