COLLEGE PARK, MD, July 22, 2020 – City of College Park District 2 Councilmember P.J. Brennan has announced his resignation from City Council, effective September 30, 2020. His resignation creates a vacancy on City Council for District 2 which will require a Special Election later this year. "Nick and I have been looking for a house that suited the needs of our growing family and a unique opportunity arose in Calvert Hills;” said Councilmember Brennan, "we’re also glad we found our new home in the City of College Park because it has one of the lowest tax rates in our area and excellent City services."
According to the City’s Charter, because this vacancy occurs more than 180 days prior to the next general election, a special election must be held within 65 days after the vacancy exists. The date and details of the upcoming Special Election will be announced soon, after the College Park Board of Election Supervisors have met. Information regarding candidacy and the election will be published on the City’s website (www.collegeparkmd.gov/elections) as well as through other City communication channels. For further information about the Special Election, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Councilmember Brennan first joined the City Council in December 2013. He and his husband Nick have lived in the City for more than nine years and have two children. "We will miss our home in Berwyn. We’ve made some great friends and memories here. We’ll still be around to visit friends, walk the Trolley Trail, and shop at local stores" stated Councilmember Brennan.
