The Prince George’s County Council soundly condemns the use of a racial slur, inappropriate in
any context, by Maryland lawmaker Mary Ann Lisanti to describe our County. The use of such
language is abhorrent and harmful, and Delegate Lisanti owes Prince George’s County residents
a public apology. We are proud, hardworking and longstanding citizens of the larger Maryland
community and its history, and we share in the continuing fight for equality and opportunity for all.
The Council joins with County Executive Angela Alsobrooks, the Prince George’s House
Delegation, the Maryland Legislative Black Caucus and other stakeholders in the call for the
General Assembly to take appropriate and responsive action. In the best interest of the state and
its residents, Delegate Lisanti must make an important decision about her ability to
effectively legislate on behalf of Maryland’s richly diverse communities.
