[ARCHIVED] CHAIR WELCOMES SENATOR MILLER AND DELEGATE BUSCH TO ANNAPOLIS EDITION OF “FOCUS ON THE FUTURE”

COUNCIL CHAIR WELCOMES SENATOR MIKE MILLER AND DELEGATE MICHAEL BUSCH TO SPECIAL ANNAPOLIS EDITION “FOCUS ON THE FUTURE”

Senate President and Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates are Featured Guests on Council Cable Program

The latest edition of “Focus on the Future,” hosted by Council Chair Derrick L. Davis (D) - District 6, is airing on Community Television of Prince George’s (CTV).

This special Annapolis Edition features as guests Maryland State Senator and Senate President Thomas V. “Mike” Miller (D - District 27), and Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates, Maryland State Delegate Michael E. “Mike” Busch (D - District 30A).

Council Chair Davis says he is honored for the opportunity to speak with the Presiding Officers about Prince George’s County.

“The County Council works closely with Maryland lawmakers to address key issues facing County residents,” said Council Chair Davis. “It was particularly timely to visit Annapolis for an in-depth conversation with Senator Miller and Delegate Busch as we focus on the great future of Prince George’s County.”

Senator Miller noted the tremendous progress in Prince George’s County, sharing his thoughts on the County’s planned Regional Medical Center and MGM National Harbor.

“Prince George’s County is blossoming and growing; It’s the result of the County Council, the County Executive and the legislature coming together to make positive things happen. The whole world is going to be focusing on Prince George’s County.”

Later in the program, Chair Davis and Delegate Busch discussed a host of issues including health, education, and the planned Purple Line.

“The Purple Line is essential to move people back and forth in the workplace. In order to be competitive you have to have the transportation system that’s going to attract businesses because they want to know their employees can get back and forth to work. One of the things you have to take advantage of is a mass transit system that can do that.”

“Focus on the Future” airs on CTV Channel 70 (Comcast), on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.; Thursdays at 11:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m.; and Fridays at 1:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Community Television of Prince George’s is an award-winning, non-profit cable access facility serving as the media hub of information for Prince George’s County.
