Community Activist Amber Green announces candidacy for Wicomico Co. Council District 1

 

WICOMICO COUNTY, Md. — The County Council’s District 1 seat is now vacant and a local community activist is looking to fill it.

The Executive Director of The Fenix Youth Project, Amber Green, recently announced her candidacy.

Green tells 47 ABC that her platform will be focused on affordable housing, public safety, education,  and an emphasis on youth development.

 She adds that her activism work and passion for the place she calls home will allow her to not only  bring fresh ideas to the table but establish a community that works for all. “Our county has not spent a lot of communication or had any conversation on youth development and I think its time that we move forward on that and create a master plan when it comes to our youth,” Green said.

“This is just me taking the next step to doing what I’ve been doing already which is listening to the community, collaborating with community leaders and bringing solutions that work for everyone.”

The candidate filing deadline is March 22nd. Green is currently running unopposed.
