Thank You All, I’m Humbled

Vote Count, 2013 College Park election

Vote Count, College Park election 2013

According to the un-official results of yesterday’s election, Council member Wojahn and I got reelected to District 1 (Kabir: 472, Wojahn: 443, Mellman: 125). Please check this Gazette article to find the complete results of all other races. Our election officials will count around 12 absentee ballots this morning, when we expect to see the official result.

I want to thank you all for giving me the opportunity to serve you for another two years in our district. I am really humbled to see so many of you putting your trust in me as your representative on the City Council for the next term. It means a lot to me.

I also want to thank and congratulate Council member Wojahn and Ben Mellman for running a spirited campaign.

I am also very excited to have the opportunity to work on some great projects on in the next two years. We all hope to see some real changes on Route 1’s look with this development. These include: the Gateway Park, the 9909 Baltimore Avenue (aka the Spooky House), Metropolitan Development (at Cherokee), Monument Development (at Delaware), and the Route 1 sidewalk retrofit project.

Our Hollywood Farmers Market helped revitalize the south side of Hollywood commercial district, but we will continue to work on revitalizing the northern part using the tenant improvement program and by the Rhode Island Avenue streetscape program.

Although crime in the city has gone down to a 7 year low recently, we cannot rest on the improvement of public safety in our area. I will work with the Neighborhood Watch leadership and Council member Wojahn to strengthen the Neighborhood Watch program. I really want to see a block captain taking leadership on each block of our streets. With your help, I think that is entirely possible in reaching that goal.

Like in my previous term, I will continue to work with Council member Wojahn to serve you all in our district. When it comes to the constituent services, the interest of our individual residents comes first and we’ll both work as a team.

Please note, no matter how you voted yesterday, I will remain at your service. So, please feel free to let me know in any way I can be of your help.  I really enjoyed helping you all in getting things done and addressing your concerns. I will continue to do so in my next term.

Thanks again for your kind support.


Vote College Park!

    Thanks for all your hard work! I’ve gotten to know many of my neighbors since the opening of the farmers market. It’s really great!
