A Letter from Maxine Gross

Dear Neighbor,

For decades, I have called Lakeland in College Park my home. For years, I have been advocating for the remembrance of our community that was shattered in the 1970s by the now infamous urban renewal project that forced many of the City’s African American residents to move out of the historically black community.

Denise Mitchell is the only candidate that has been dedicated to this project and truly understands the importance of the Lakeland community to the City of College Park. It is for this reason that I fully support and endorse Denise Mitchell for Mayor of College Park Maryland.

When Denise’s family moved to College Park there were efforts to keep her family from moving in due to the color of their skin. Now, Denise is on the verge of history by being the first woman of color elected as Mayor in College Park.

I encourage my friends across District 2 and College Park to support Denise’s campaign in any way you are able to. Whether it’s making a financial contribution, offering time to help make phone calls and knock doors, or simply casting your ballot on election day, show your support for history.

Early voting will take place Tuesday, May 2 from 8am to 7pm at Davis Hall, while election day voting will take place Saturday, May 6 from 10am to 6pm at City Hall.

Please visit or reach out to to inquire more about her policies and how to contribute to the campaign.

I am proud of the dedication Denise has made to the community over the years. I know that with her as Mayor, our city will be safer, more equitable, and a better place to live.

Join me in supporting Denise Mitchell for Mayor.

Maxine Gross

Former College Park City Councilmember
