Baker, III. “I also want to thank the workers of WSSC for their hard work and diligence to quickly repair this water main without our residents completely losing their access to water. Finally, I want to acknowledge the incredible employees of Prince George’s County who mobilized on a moment’s notice to ensure that our residents were safe, secure, and assisted with resources when needed.”
