More about Angela Alsobrooks
Angela Alsobrooks is the County Executive for Maryland’s second most populous jurisdiction, Prince George’s County. In a crowded field, she won her 2022 Democratic primary contest with 91% of the vote before getting reelected in the general election unopposed. She bested a former member of Congress in 2018 to win the Democratic nomination as County executive. Angela earned 62% of the vote in that contest.
From 2010 to 2018, Angela was the elected State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County, the top law enforcement officer for Prince George’s County. She significantly and consistently reduced crime in every major category during that time. Her 2010 election was her first time on the ballot for elected office; she bested the incumbent clerk of court (a position elected countywide) and incumbent county council chair in that contest with 42% of the vote – twice what any other candidate garnered.
Angela studied law in Baltimore from 1993 to 1996, earning her law degree from the University of Maryland Law School (in Baltimore). From there, she clerked for respected jurists Donna Hill Staton at the Howard County Circuit Court and William Quarles at the Baltimore City Circuit Court before returning to Prince George’s County as an assistant state’s attorney.
