PGCAR Announces "First Round" Primary Election Endorsements
The Association's Political Tracking Task Force has started the "vetting" process by interviewing candidates in anticipation of the 2018 Primary Election on June 26, 2018. The process was started with focus on the listed County Council districts (see below). Another round of interviews and endorsements will be concluded well in advance of the June Primary Election.
All of the candidates who were interviewed and who responded to our candidate questionnaire offer a wide range of personal and career experience. These candidates demonstrated that they understand the issues of concern to the real estate community, homebuyers, sellers and property owners in Prince George's County.
This election year we are very happy to point out that three of the below listed candidates have ties to the REALTOR®
community; Candidates Jolene Ivey and Monique Walker are PGCAR REALTOR®
members and Sydney Harrison, currently Clerk of the Court for Prince George's County, is a former PGCAR REALTOR®
All of these candidates share a strong commitment to ensure an excellent quality of life in Prince George's County:
