At tonight’s City Council meeting, I’ll have the profound honor and privilege of swearing in the new City Council members. I am inspired by the enthusiasm and commitment of the new Council, and I look forward to working collaboratively to uplift College Park and fulfill the aspirations of our residents. I am also incredibly grateful to all of you for allowing me to serve you for the next two years as your Mayor. I acknowledge the challenging circumstances that led to my election six months ago. This period tested our community’s resilience, and your trust in me to lead with transparency and integrity during that time is not taken lightly.

As a community, we’ve achieved significant progress, but the best of College Park has yet to come! As we reflect on these accomplishments and chart the course for our future endeavors, I am confident that the collaborative spirit between our Council and the community will continue to drive positive change, making College Park an even more vibrant and inclusive place to call home. Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to the betterment of our City.
