Patrick was happy to see a strong turnout of Hyattsville residents at the District 22 night in Annapolis. At the event, hosted by all four of our elected representatives at the state level for District 22, which covers most of Hyattsville, We hard remarks from our Senator and Delegates about their legislative agendas for the year.
Most notable was our newest Delegate, Alonzo Washington. Delegate Washington talked passionately about his background as a life-long Prince Georgian who was raised by a single mother and was the first in his family to go to college. One of the messages he highlighted, which resonated with many in the crowd, is that while we have a lot we can do to move our state forward in a progressive direction, we must start with educational opportunities. Delegate Washington spoke from a personal place about his educational opportunities and how those opportunities have opened doors for him that should be available to everyone.
