LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Maryland’s Ivey has what it takes
Former Prince George's County State's Attorney, Glenn F. Ivey, who is moving "full speed ahead" in preparing for a congressional run next year, is sure to be a hit on the campaign trail ("Ivey planning primary challenge against Donna Edwards," Web, Tuesday).
Well-liked, highly respected and an effective leader who always knew how to properly treat the people who worked for him, Mr. Ivey is a proven public servant who made a significant impact during his two-term tenure as state's attorney.
Mr. Ivey's assets are many, and he is a man of various talents when it comes to serving the public. An astute listener, an engaging man and a fair politician, he knows how to cultivate cooperative and collaborative relationships across the region. He understands the importance of people and communities working together in an integrated fashion to make a significant difference.
As state's attorney, Mr. Ivey demonstrated his ability to focus on priority criminal justice issues that included domestic violence, homicide, and violent and economic crimes. His polished trial skills, keen analytical abilities, political acumen and his street smarts added up to a winning combination in the public-service sector.
Mr. Ivey's ability to initiate a productive conversation in the community and reach out to those in need were the reasons for his popularity. Amid his busy schedule and heavy demands of the job, Mr. Ivey always made time for anyone who wanted to interact with him or needed his assistance.
Mr. Ivey is a mover and shaker. His passion for public service, his compassion for people, and his determination and proven ability to make the world a better place are the valuable ingredients that make him the right choice as a congressional candidate and a winner in the next election.
