I have lived in College Park Estates with my wife Melissa and our sons Robert Jr., Matthew and Maxwell, for 16 years.

I have been an active member of the community for 14 years through many boards and commissions. Until I was elected to the Council, I was the President of the College Park Estates Civic Association, Chair of the Rent Stabilization Board, member of the Noise Control Board, current member and two-term former chair of the Advisory Planning Commission. I have also served as the 2003 Vice Chair and 2011 Chair of the City Redistricting Commission, and member of the Advisory Planning Group for 2002 US 1 Corridor Sector Plan.

I have worked to represent resident and neighborhood interests to improve the Quality of Life in our community. Throughout all of my board and committee roles, and now as a councilmember, I have been a strong voice, asking the tough questions and focusing on representing the needs and desires of the community. My goal in running for re-election is to continue being a strong leader in building a better College Park which will remain a community that people and businesses want to call home for years to come.

A City Councilmember since January 2007, Stephanie has lived in College Park with her husband Bob Schnabel for 19 years. She previously served as president of the Old Town Civic Association and on the Committee for a Better Environment, and co-authored a book on the history of College Park. She recently co-chaired the Neighborhood Stabilization and Quality of Life Work Group. Stephanie works at the U.S. Department of Education.

Stephanie believes we have many opportunities to make College Park a more vibrant, safe, and attractive community. She has been a vocal advocate for supporting effective police services and building more student housing near the University campus. Redevelopment will continue to change College Park; we must work hard to reduce traffic, attract high-quality locally-owned retail and restaurants, ensure new developments are moderate density and environmentally sensitive, and create a walkable and vibrant downtown. Stephanie will continue to vigorously support the Purple Line and oppose efforts to redirect traffic through established neighborhoods.

Stephanie believes constituent service and keeping the community informed is one of a councilmember’s most important roles. She invites residents to share their concerns and ideas so that we can work together to make College Park a better place.

My experience of College Park began in 1991 while attending the University of Maryland. I graduated in 1994 with a B.S. in Natural Resources Management, with an emphasis on Environmental Education & Parks Management. I continued working at UMD, living nearby in Adelphi. I moved to College Park in 2005.

In 2007, I became involved with Jefferson Properties Inc. (JPI) West efforts to develop in our community; the economy derailed that development. Then I became involved in the update to the County’s Sector Plan for US Rt 1.

I served on the Animal Welfare Committee. I am on the Committee for a Better Environment, focusing on Energy Efficiency workshops. I served on the 2011 Redistricting Commission for College Park. And I also serve on this year’s College Park Day Committee.

This year I became the Autoville community liaison working with the Monument Village at College Park project (successor to JPI West) on their Detailed Site Plan.

I believe community involvement is essential to any community worth living in. North College Park is the focus of the City’s next wave of development. Assuring smart development and development that will complement its surrounding community is why I am running for City Council.
