Prince George’s County
A lifelong resident of Prince George’s County, Angela Alsobrooks earned a bachelor’s degree in public policy from Duke University and a law degree from the University of Maryland’s Carey School of Law.
Since law school, Alsobrooks has risen through the ranks of Prince George’s government, working as an assistant county state’s attorney, education liaison for then-County Executive Jack Johnson and executive director of the county revenue authority.
In 2010, she was elected as the first female Prince George’s State’s Attorney. In 2018, she was elected as the county’s first female county executive.
What is your proudest professional accomplishment?
My proudest professional accomplishment is currently leading the community that raised me during an unprecedented pandemic. We disbursed nearly $200 million in financial assistance to businesses and residents. We gave out 400,000 boxes of groceries through our Stand Up & Deliver program, all while continuing to deliver on our key priorities, which included the groundbreaking of our new mental health facility, breaking ground on nine new schools and making significant investments to preserve/expand affordable housing. I’m blessed to have so many place their trust in me to lead our community.
What do you do for fun and why?
One thing Prince Georgians know about me is that their county executive loves to dance! I especially love a good line dance with our sassy seniors; it truly brings me so much joy to just be able to dance and have fun.
