THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
I was officially sworn in as the new District 8 County Council Member on February 15, 2022, to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Council Member Monique Anderson-Walker.
BUT IT'S NOT OVER YET!
The Regular Election will be held on Tuesday, June 28, 2022 and I am asking for your vote to continue delivering results for the people of Prince George’s County.
A proven advocate for our community.
A life-long resident of Prince George’s County and graduate of Crossland High School, Edward Burroughs has a proven track record of delivering results for our community.
He is a leading voice against corruption on the Board of Education, where he fights to pass transformational education policies and hold our school system leaders accountable.
As Legislative Affairs Director to Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy, Edward has front-line experience developing crime prevention policies and strategies to protect our community.
He will leverage his diverse expertise and proven record of delivering results as our next Councilmember.
An Advocate On Issues That Matter Most To Our Community.
No Property Tax Increase
Prince George’s County has one of the highest property tax rates in the DC area. Edward will not vote to raise property taxes when so many of our residents are struggling to make ends meet and recover from the pandemic. Now is not the time to raise property taxes.
Too many residents have to travel outside of our county to find high-paying jobs. Edward will advocate for policies to attract quality employers to our community and require County contractors to prioritize local hiring and pay family-supporting wages.
Innovative Education Strategies
Edward is committed to providing our children the necessary tools to succeed in the classroom and in life, as his many years on the Board of Education demonstrate. He will leverage that first-hand experience to promote innovative strategies so that students can succeed in the modern economy, teachers are paid salaries competitive with surrounding counties, and school infrastructure is modernized.
Edward will ensure District 8 residents can access the County’s in-demand career and training opportunities available at the recently-opened American Job Center--National Harbor. He will strive to increase access to government contracting opportunities for local, small business owners.
Transparency and Accountability
As an advocate of open government and transparency, Edward Burroughs believes it’s good public policy to hold County leaders accountable. As our next District 8 Councilmember, Edward Burroughs will never back down. He will fight for the services we deserve, and we can count on him to ask the questions that need to be answered.
