Prince George's County Board of Education Chairwoman Verjeana Jacobs, '96, is quoted in the Maryland Gazette on running for office.

Residents will have a "clear choice" by November of who to support in District 5, said Jacobs, adding that she is encouraged to see young people enthusiastic about running for office but noted that when it comes to overseeing a $1.6 billion budget, experience matters.

"The reality is our constituents almost never really know how much work you put into this job," Jacobs said. "It's grueling. It's hard work. … You have to get in the board room. You have to talk about policy, the behind the scenes stuff our citizens never see."
