About Edward Burroughs
Edward Burroughs is driven to serve District 8. He is a life-long resident of Prince George’s County, a graduate of Crossland High School. Edward attended Bowie State University and graduated from University of Maryland Baltimore County with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science.
During high school, the 130,000+ PGCPS student body elected Edward to represent them as the Student Member of the Board of Education. After serving as the Student Member for two one-year terms, Burroughs chose to run to represent District 8 on the Board of Education so that he could continue advocating for improvements to the local school system.
Having proven his unyielding commitment to the community while in office, Edward has been reelected time and again to represent District 8 on the Board of Education. Edward has been a fierce advocate for improving our education system and has a record of passing policies to empower our community and provide the best services to county residents.
Based on his successful record of service to the County and passionate advocacy for our youth, Edward was selected to serve in the Office of Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy. An integral member of the Braveboy team, Burroughs was assigned to lead the youth court division and develop innovative ways to steer our young boys and girls away from the criminal justice system and into programs to empower their futures. State’s Attorney Braveboy most recently appointed Edward to his current position as Director of Legislative Affairs where he plays a key role in the development of crime prevention policies to keep our communities safe.
Edward will bring his expertise and record of delivering results to the County Council as our next Councilmember for District 8!
