Message from the Mayor
Greetings! I would like to welcome you to the new Town of Upper Marlboro web site, one of the most advance and user-friendly municipal web sites currently available in Prince Georges County, Maryland. Since my election as the first African American Mayor of the historic Town of Upper Marlboro, we have made great strides in improving Town Services (Police, Public Works, Code Enforcement), Community outreach, Community Events, and building stronger relations with our County and State partners. Over the next few years, we are working to build a Town Community Playground, begin the Redevelopment of our Downtown area, and work to expand our Town limits to provide Greater Upper Marlboro residents access to the Town’s superior municipal services.
My passion and dedication for public services and community engagement are the key motivating factors which have led to my interest in public service . Working with my colleagues and other community leaders, I will continue to work diligently to secure the necessary resources to improve our community’s economic development, local infrastructure and public safety needs.
In addition to my Board of Commissioner colleagues, I am supported by a dedicated Executive Team who coordinates the day-to-day operations of the Town by working with Town Department Heads to carrying out the Board of Commissioners strategic plan. The team is made up of an Executive Officer who oversees the Board’s calendars and all administrative operations, a Chief of Staff who oversees the daily operations of Town services and coordinates internal and external policy engagements and an Events & Recreations Director who oversees all internal and external Town events, committees and parks and recreation.
Finally, I would like to thank my fellow Commissioners Linda Pennoyer and Wanda Leonard for working with me to move this strategic agenda forward! I’d also like to extend my sincere gratitude to residents, visitors and friends, for their diligence in helping the town honor our past but now look to our future.
At your service,
Tonga Y. Turner
Mayor/President Board of Commission
Town of Upper Marlboro
