Dannielle Glaros’ Commitment to Prince George’s County

As your Council Member, Dannielle will continue to actively make a difference by:

  • Revitalizing commercial areas and pursuing new development at Metro and MARC stations. Over the past three years as your Council Member, Dannielle has worked to bring positive revitalization projects to the College Park and New Carrollton Metro stations. Just one of the projects under construction today at New Carrollton will bring 800+ jobs to Prince George's County. In addition, she's pushing the State to improve parking, pedestrian safety and structural issues at the Seabrook MARC station, while ensuring the County is doing its part also. Dannielle has experience bringing projects to fruition, and she will continue her work to attract new jobs and bring quality shopping and restaurants to our county.
  • Improving public schools. Dannielle's unwavering advocacy for a new William Wirt Middle School has resulted in the project's continued funding. An architect has been hired and the project is being designed now. Dannielle's advocacy is bringing a new playground to Riverdale Elementary and a new middle school in the Glenridge area. For the past three years she has hosted a College & Career Fair at Parkdale High School, with more than 500 students and their families attending to learn about college & career opportunities. She will continue to advocate for smaller class sizes as well as attracting and retaining quality teachers and principals. She will collaborate with educators, parents, and students to create great learning environments.
  • Strengthening public safety. Dannielle knows that police and firefighters need support and resources to get the job done. She has worked closely with Prince George's County Volunteer Firefighters to pass legislation ensuring they receive benefits should they be diagnosed with certain types of cancer which firefighters have a higher propensity for. She will continue to work to reduce response times and tackle the root causes of crime. Dannielle is proud to have the support of the Prince George's County Fraternal Order of Police and the Prince George's County Firefighters Association.
  • Supporting  transportation choices and protecting our environment. Dannielle has worked on bringing the Purple Line to Prince George's County for more than 10 years. She strongly supports the Purple Line, better bus service, and building greater trail and neighborhood bike connections. She has deep concerns on the effect of Maglev on our communities.
  • Advocating for neighborhoods. Dannielle believes neighborhoods should be safe, clean, and vibrant. She has sponsored and passed legislation giving our code enforcement officers and police additional tools to improve our neighborhoods. She continues to push for strong code enforcement to improve problem properties and will work to make sure our neighborhoods are safe and inviting.
  • Ensuring Equity and Inclusion. Dannielle believes that success in our county and in District 3 is only determined if all residents are lifted up as economic development and jobs come to Prince George's County.  It is why she has created innovative collaborations with non-profits organizations and convened a working group on workforce development. Dannielle has sponsored and passed local legislation to effect change. As a regional leader and member of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, Dannielle advocates for policies to ensure regional equity and inclusion. She is a founding steering committee member of the Purple Line "Opportunities for All" community agreement and a founding board member of the Prince George's Food Equity Council.
