About Proud Priorities and Promises
The Proud Priorities and Promises Catalog represent County Executive Angela Alsobrooks’ commitment to building and maintaining a 21st century county government infrastructure that meets the wholistic needs of Prince Georgians through the collaborative work of our county government leaders, agency personnel and community stakeholders. The development of our Proud Priorities and Promises Portfolio began in 2019 through the collaborative work of county government leaders, agency personnel and community leaders. The portfolio expanded with additional policy recommendations offered by the Prince George’s County Forward Task Force and the Prince George’s County Police Reform Commission following the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
The County continuously acts to ensure that its resources and services are best used to create a desirable quality of life for residents and return value to our taxpayers. Major Proud Priorities currently focus our work in improving educational outcomes and environments, reducing violent crime, increasing the county’s procurement with county-based small and minority owned businesses, ensuring our agencies are staffed to deliver high quality services in timely fashion, beautifying our neighborhoods, improving the speed and accuracy of our permitting systems, and hardening our communities against the onslaught of climate change by employing innovative and varied approaches to curbing property damage caused by flooding.

A Clear Vision of Progress
The catalogue seeks to provide a visual snapshot of policy projects as they are being planned and implemented. The County continuously acts to ensure that its resources and services are best used to create a desirable quality of life for residents and return value to our taxpayers. The catalogue’s simplicity and accessibility expose opportunities for the public to hold agencies and divisions accountable to their most publicly visible stated goals and celebrate when goals are achieved.
By making focused, intentional commitments to areas of policy refinement, each agency and division can take steps to ensure that Prince Georgians have an increased quality of life. The Proud Priorities Resource Survey for the Fiscal Year is an evaluation technique which ensures the relevance of projects selected for budget allocation. This certifies that the content of the catalogue is considered important to Prince Georgians. Each agency and division has topics which are matched with tactics, action steps, to guarantee successful completion. To reemphasize agency and divisional accountability, there is a timeline created relevant to the topic.
