Mayor Featured in Essence Magazine!

Petrella Robinson #83 on List of 'Woke 100 Women' to Highlight Black Women as Change-Agents


Essence cites Mayor Robinson as saying (on the benefit of having a strong network of Black women mayors): “We’ve always been strong, and we’re getting stronger. We can make a powerful change like our ancestors did. The more women who come out and do what they’re doing, the more we can keep our families together.”


Congrats to Mayor Robinson! MD mayors are also represented by Catherine Pugh (Baltimore); Tracy Gant (Town of Edmonston); Sadarra Barrow (Town of Colmar Manor); and Takiesha James (Town of Bladensburg)!
