Angela Alsobrooks is running to represent Maryland in the United States Senate. A lifelong Marylander, Angela was born and raised in Prince George’s County. Alsobrooks heard an early calling to public service and after graduating from Duke University and the University of Maryland School of Law, she worked as a law clerk in the Howard County Circuit Court, and later the Baltimore City Circuit Court, before becoming the first full-time Assistant State’s Attorney to handle domestic violence cases in Prince George’s County. Angela held a variety of roles in county government before making history as the youngest and first woman to be elected Prince George’s County State’s Attorney.

As County Executive, Alsobrooks invested $1.3 billion into stormwater management programs, doing her part at the county level to help improve the water quality of the local rivers and streams that affect the Chesapeake Bay watershed. She issued an Executive Order for Prince George's County, setting ambitious targets to reduce the 2005 emission levels by half before 2030 and net zero by 2045. In Prince George's County, she initiated investments in electric vehicles and sustainable building design to move towards a greener future. Additionally, she implemented a county-wide composting program to reduce and reuse organic waste. 

Alsobrooks is committed to protecting the Chesapeake Bay, as it is one of the country’s most precious natural treasures and believes in the necessity of safeguarding its beauty and natural ecosystem. She understands the significant role the Bay plays in Maryland's economy, from tourism to fishing, and recognizes the importance of protecting it for the benefit of future generations, allowing them to enjoy all the Bay has to offer. In the Senate, she will be a strong advocate for increasing funding for Chesapeake Bay clean-up and protection efforts.

If elected to the Senate, she will be a vocal advocate for expanding tax credits for clean energy, ensuring that all U.S. Government purchases, from buildings to vehicles, align with emission goals, and will proudly co-sponsor Senator Chris Van Hollen's Polluters Pay Climate Fund Act, which seeks to ensure that the largest contributors of fossil fuel emissions take responsibility by paying their fair share in mitigating the effects of climate change.
