By Elliott Francis

As a democratic candidate for Prince George’s County State’s attorney, Angela Alsobrooks has received the endorsement of the Washington Post, and outgoing state’s attorney Glenn Ivey. Alsobrooks faces a crowded field with four other candidates, competing to be top prosecutor in the County.

Her opponents include Peggy Magee, a former prosecutor and current clerk of the county court. There’s also Thomas Dernoga, a term-limited member of the County Council.

Alsobrooks, a 39-year old former prosecutor and current executive director of the county’s revenue authority, claims she ready to crack down on crime.

“I’m determined to be impactful by making sure that we reduce recidivism and that we send a message that Prince George’s county is not a good place to commit crime,” says Alsobrooks.

Two other former prosecutors in the race include Joseph Wright and police department inspector general Mark Spencer, who says Ivey’s endorsement of Alsobrooks is underwhelming.

“He’s endorsing continued mediocrity in that office by endorsing my opponent," says Spencer.

There are no Republican challengers. The September 14th primary will determine who takes office in January.
