"We want to make sure District 8 remains a top destination to live, work, play and do business for generations to come. While there’s always work to be done when maintaining a thriving community, it’s important that we focus our efforts. By listening to our constituents, we have been able to define our priorities and will positively impact District 8 with programming and policy-making related to:
Seniors | Military & Veterans | Youth & Education | Mental & Physical Health | Economic Development | Workforce Training | Public Safety | Transportation

On February 15, 2019, Council Member Monique Anderson-Walker launched the #DrivingItHome campaign to address the urgent need for public safety changes to "change the driving culture".
#DrivingItHome was inspired by a series of deadly accidents on Indian Head Highway/Route 210, which extends through District 8 in Prince George’s County. This ongoing initiative is focused on changing the driving culture in Prince George’s County, and stresses the importance of safe and responsible driving in six areas critical to highway safety: seatbelt use; texting and driving; driver distractions; drunk driving; highway speed; and aggressive driving.
Please view our #DrivingItHome video and share it with your family, friends, children and social media network. Whether you live in our District 8, or anywhere in the United States, we need your help to stress the widespread importance of this movement. We look forward to working with volunteers, schools, nonprofits and corporate partners in pursuit of safer roads for pedestrians and drivers. Help us save lives, join our #DrivingItHome movement today!
