Council Chair Statements

Posted on: February 15, 2018



Our thoughts and prayers are with South Florida, and all who mourn the painful loss of the 17 victims of yet another deadly massacre at a school in our country. The shock and sorrow felt by the families of helpless victims who died at the hand of a gunman wielding an assault weapon in the horrific mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday is incomprehensible. The Prince George’s County Council and the residents we represent, join mourners across our nation and around the world, as our hearts grieve for the innocent victims of this unspeakable tragedy. We pray for our nation, and join our voices with Americans who implore Congress to act.



All legislative powers of Prince George’s County are vested in the County Council. The County Council sits as the District Council on zoning and land use policy, and as the Board of Health to govern and guide health policy. The County Council meets as a legislative body on Tuesdays in the Council Hearing Room on the first floor of the County Administration Building in Upper Marlboro.
