Putting to rest rumors we heard that People for Change was gearing up to endorse former Democratic Central Committee Vice-Chair Arthur Turner, today People for Change announced they would make the same decision they made last year and instead back Mark Polk, President of the Prince George’s County Library Board. Polk ran for the County Council in 2010 against Leslie Johnson, Derrick Leon Davis, Arthur Turner, Venus Bethea, and Abdul Abdullah where he finished 5th with 900 votes behind Johnson, Davis, Turner and even Bethea who wasn’t included in the People for Change candidate’s forum.

The District 6 Coalition and People for Change had a vetting process in which we interviewed the top three candidates. In addition, we held a candidate debate and looked at campaign finance reports as well as public records on the candidates.
After this process, Mark Polk was selected by the group to represent the constituents of District 6 which covers (
South Bowie, Upper Marlboro, Mitchellville, Largo, Kettering, District Heights, Forestville, and Capitol Heights). Attached is a link to the endorsement.
We look forward to supporting Mark Polk and, if you are interested in helping with the District 6 campaign, please contact me. Also, visit our website for more information on the District 6 Race.
