Contact Legislators for Brandywine, Maryland
If you’re not in Brandywine and are in Prince George’s County, please contact your county council member and at-large members as indicated below. If you’re in Maryland but not PG, please contact your state senator and delegates as power plants are regulated by the state. Email addresses and phone numbers for the County Council are on this page. State senators and delegates listed here.
What to say to your legislators is specified below and on blog posts (latest blog post on top of Recent Posts list on right or below).
Contact MD Senator Mike Miller
Please help support Sen Mike Miller’s request to have the Maryland Public Service Commission change the notification requirements for power companies to post notices on the property being proposed as new plants. Legislation that says to include written letters to people in the 5 mile radius would be beneficial. Current legislation specifies certain types of public notices, but the kind of newspaper posts, signage, social media posting being done is not anything that would be seen be the average area resident. Legislators can’t create better legislation if they don’t know and understand our concerns. His contact information is here.
Contact MD Delegate Michael Jackson to voice your opposition
Let MD Delegate Michael Jackson know where you stand on Keys Energy and Mattawoman Power Center. Email him at MDJackson1@co.pg.md.us or call him at (301) 952-4919. Del Jackson supports the new plant construction and has commented on how it will benefit the “community” regarding new construction jobs (more on construction jobs at power plants on the Issues tab).
Contact County Executive Angela Alsobrooks & County Council Representatives
In general, they think we don’t care (except only a handful of us who are active), so let them know with a call, email, and/or letter. You can include in your message that you don’t want them to support power plants with tax incentives or tax breaks. Find their contacts here. (Brandywine is County Council District 9 and also contact At-Large members)
