Just yesterday, Towson University's newspaper interviewed K. Alexander about his campaign and what he aims to accomplish if elected. In the interview, he also highlighted the fact that a great education has primed him for running for public office.
Graduating senior Kennard A. Wallace is running for one of two District 25 seats on Prince George’s County Democratic Central Committee.“The role of the Democratic Central Committee is to be the governing body of the Democratic Party for a Legislative District and if elected, my constituents can rest assured knowing that their Representative is not only experienced but also motivated and eager to be a leader to advocate their point of view on the local and state level,” Wallace said in an email.
Wallace, who majored in political science and minored in communication studies, also said that his platform revolves around the “major concerns of [his] neighbors,” and building “an economy that grows from the middle-class outward.”
An active participant in on-campus groups like SGA, in which he served as 2012-2013 Chief of Staff, and the University Residence Government, Wallace credits his experiences at Towson with inspiring him to run for PG County’s Democratic Central Committee. During his time in SGA, Wallace was a member of the committee that developed the bereavement procedure that was approved in February and will take effect Aug. 1, according to a previous Towerlight article.As a student, Wallace also acted as a resident assistant for three years and represented Towson students on the state level to the Maryland Higher Education Commission.“
