The Prince George’s County Council welcomed
United States Senator Chris Van Hollen (D - MD), to the County Administration
Building in Upper Marlboro on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, for an informal “Meet
and Greet” luncheon.
Senator Van Hollen said, “I was very pleased to
meet today with members of the Prince George’s County Council. It was a great
chance to discuss how we can work together on initiatives like transportation
and economic development, so our community continues to grow and thrive. We
also discussed how we can join forces to support our federal employees,
government service contractors, and local businesses during this senseless and
shameful government shutdown. I look forward to working in partnership with the
Council to ensure continued progress and success in Prince George’s County.”
Council Chair Todd M. Turner (D) – District 4, thanked
Senator Van Hollen for providing updates on important issues, and addressing
the Council’s community concerns and questions.
“We appreciate Senator Van Hollen’s strong
leadership on Capitol Hill, as well as his hard work and advocacy on behalf of constituents
in Prince George’s County, the state of Maryland, and the United States. We are
also very appreciative of the information Senator Van Hollen shared with us. I look
forward to our continued partnership in service to Prince George’s County.”
In addition to the Federal Government Shutdown,
discussion topics also included transportation and infrastructure issues
including WMATA, the Purple Line and the MAGLEV Project, Kirwan Commission
recommendations and education funding, immigration, returning citizens
initiatives, and the opioid epidemic.
