Stephanie E. Stullich
Councilmember, District 3
7400 Dartmouth Avenue
College Park, Maryland 20740
301-742-4442

 

A member of the City Council since January 2007, Stephanie has lived in College Park with her husband Bob Schnabel for 15 years.  She previously served as president of the Old Town Civic Association and on the Committee for a Better Environment, and co-authored a book on the history of College Park.  Stephanie works at the U.S. Department of Education as a program analyst. 

Stephanie recognizes that College Park faces many challenges, but believes we have many opportunities to make our city a more vibrant, safe, and attractive community.  She has been a vocal advocate for sufficient and effective police services, and for building more student housing on and near the campus.  Redevelopment proposals will continue to change College Park; we must work hard to reduce traffic, attract high-quality locally-owned retail and restaurants, ensure new developments are moderate density and environmentally sensitive, and create a walkable and vibrant downtown.  Stephanie will continue to vigorously support the Purple Line and oppose efforts to redirect Route 1 traffic through established neighborhoods.

Stephanie believes constituent service and keeping the community informed is one of a councilmember’s most important roles and invites residents to share their concerns and ideas so that we can work together to make College Park a better place.

 Marcus Afzali bio

Marcus Afzali
Councilmember, District 4
9238 Limestone Place
College Park, Maryland 20740
240-391-8241

 

My family first moved to College Park in the 1980s after immigrating to the United States from England. College Park is my childhood home and was a wonderful place to grow up. I have been active and engaged in government and politics for years and graduated from college with a degree in political science.

 

I moved back to College Park in 2007 while working for the Maryland Department of Labor and eventually the Maryland Democratic Party. I currently live in the Crystal Springs neighborhood and am a doctoral candidate in Government and Politics. I am running for city council because I believe I can make a difference in my hometown.

 

While there are citywide issues that must be dealt with, each neighborhood has unique concerns that deserve our attention. In the Woods, we need to work closer with law enforcement to address serious public safety concerns. In Cherry Hill and Autoville, we need to ensure county leaders respect local concerns on the Route One Sector Plan. In Crystal Springs, we need to actively work on making our neighborhood cleaner and more livable for everyone.

I’m asking for your vote this November so I can help address these concerns.
