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.

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.
