What is the possibility of requiring contractors for the Blue Line Corridor project to hire returning citizens from Prince George’s County?
Growing opportunity for the employment of the formerly incarcerated remains a strong priority of the Alsobrooks Administration. This part of the program remains under development. Early recommendations coming back are looking at the County’s past successes in integrating the formerly incarcerated, and those successes and best practices from around the nation. We plan to involve existing local organizations and other best performers in that space to implement quality programming in the community. There isn’t any mandate, but this is how we work together to make sure an opportunity exists.
