From the Desk of Prince George’s County Council Member Derrick Leon Davis
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY COUNCIL, DISTRICT 6
THURSDAY, APRIL 7, 2022
As Prince Georgians, we share a destiny and a purpose. Together, we have accomplished so much (far too much to chronicle here)! And we have weathered many, many storms!
I cannot thank all of you enough for allowing me the latitude to do 'Big Things on Purpose,' for Prince Georgians, and for the opportunity to shine the light of Prince George's promise on the region.
Remaining in the spirit of Gratitude, I thank God for my Wife and Best Friend, Sherry, who taught me the critical lesson of obedience. Your support has meant everything. Scripture says, "He who finds a wife, finds a good thing."
To my District 6 Team - Nell Johnson; Rita Lassiter; and Lenne White - You are the BEST in the business! Thank you for using your remarkable talents and skills to serve our residents.
I pray that I have served well. It is my prayer that I have done so to His Glory, as I have given my best daily. This experience has truly been an honor and a blessing.
Now, the time has come for me to rest, restore, and prepare for the next leg of this journey; therefore, I am resigning my seat on the Prince George's County Council, effective Close of Business, Friday, April 15, 2022. May God continue to bless us all with His Grace and Mercy. Thank you.
