I will never forget the moment I learned that many of the crabs that we eat in Maryland come from out of state, because too much of our own Chesapeake Bay is a dead zone, unable to support life.  As a Marylander, this is a prime example of why it is so important to preserve, protect and maintain our environment and natural resources, which are under serious threat from irresponsible human activity.

 

Prince George’s County is the statewide leader in a number of environmental initiatives, from repurposing waste, to treating stormwater runoff, to increasing the energy efficiency of our buildings (which not only is good for the environment, but also saves tax dollars).  I look forward to strengthening these initiatives  and to continue Prince George’s County’s role as a state wide leader on the environment.
