Do you agree with creating two At-Large Council seats in Prince George's?

Currently the Prince George's County Council is considering expanding to include two At Large representatives. The proposal allows term limited council members to run for At-Large seats. Let us know what you think using the poll below. We are taking input to determine what we will do in regards to this proposal.

Here's a quote from the Sentinel's coverage on the issue:

"On June 14, the county council voted 7-0 to introduce a measure that, if it succeeds after a public hearing and a second vote, would be submitted to referendum on the Nov. 8 ballot and amend the Prince George’s County Charter. The amendment would add two at-large seats to the Prince George’s County Council, to be filled by voters county-wide. Currently, the body only contains district council members who are elected only by residents of their specific districts.

The amendment also specifies that a district council member who has already served the maximum two terms allowed by the current charter would still be eligible for one of the at-large seats, potentially doubling the time a councilmember could serve from two to four terms.

The measure, CB 40-2016, was sponsored by Council Chair Derrick Davis, Vice-Chair Dannielle Glaros and council members Todd Turner and Deni Taveras."
