Angela D. Alsobrooks


In November 2018, Angela, a proud, life-long Prince Georgian, was elected as the 8th County Executive for Prince George’s County and the first woman to hold the position. Her administration is committed to providing a world-class education system, safe communities and a robust economy that creates jobs and opportunities for all and increases the commercial tax base to ensure residents are provided with the services they deserve.

During her first year in office, Angela has led a government that increased education funding, allowing reductions in class size and support for almost 5,000 Pre-K students. She submitted a budget that added additional personnel to agencies and upgraded technology across government to ensure efficient, effective service delivery to residents. She also created the Office of Veterans Affairs, the first of its kind in the state, to ensure our 60,000 veterans receive the resources they deserve. Additionally, under her leadership, the county has continued to be the economic engine in the state, retaining its Triple-A bond rating and leading the state in job growth for the fifth consecutive year.

Angela knew from an early age that she wanted to give back to the community that raised her and give a voice to those who might not otherwise have one.

After graduating from the University of Maryland Law School, Angela began her career as a Prince George’s County Assistant State’s Attorney in 1997, eventually becoming the county’s first full-time prosecutor assigned to handle domestic violence cases.

In 2002, Angela was appointed by the County Executive to serve as Education Liaison, where she organized educational forums to help increase parental involvement in schools and environmental based learning opportunities. In 2003, she was appointed the Executive Director of the county’s Revenue Authority. Under her leadership, the agency increased revenue by 40% through their parking enforcement program and some of those funds were used to help the county maintain a balanced budget during the recession.

In 2010, Angela was elected to serve as the county’s State’s Attorney, becoming the youngest and first woman to be elected to the office in Prince George’s County.

As the county’s top law enforcement official, Angela played a key role in public safety and strived to carry out her responsibilities in a firm, fair and consistent manner. She fought for additional resources to ensure the office could appropriately support the needs of the community.

She created a truancy reduction initiative that works with schools to keep kids on the right path and also started a program called Back on Track – Prince George’s aimed at giving first-time, low-level, non-violent, felony drug dealers a second chance in the community. Under her leadership, prosecution rates rose across the board and remained steady during her tenure.

Angela is a member of the First Baptist Church of Glenarden and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and is involved in the effort to raise breast cancer awareness in her community. Angela resides in Upper Marlboro with her daughter, Alex.
