Braveboy Vies for State’s Attorney

Aisha Braveboy, a former member of the Maryland House of Delegates who ran as a candidate for attorney general in 2014, has changed her focus from Annapolis to Upper Marlboro, Md. as the county’s top prosecutor.

“I am running for Prince George’s County State’s Attorney in order for the county to realize its full potential,” Braveboy told the AFRO at the Oct. 7 groundbreaking ceremony for the Peppermill Community Center rebuilding in Hyattsville, Md. “In order to realize our potential, we have to emphasize public safety. Criminals and criminality will not be tolerated.”

Braveboy is a native of Prince George’s County and is a 1992 graduate of Largo High School. She stayed in the county to attend the University of Maryland, College Park and got a bachelor’s degree in government and politics in 1997.

Braveboy got a law degree from the Howard University School of Law and was admitted to the Maryland Bar in 2000. In 2006, she was elected as the Democratic delegate from Maryland’s 25th House district and served in that body until 2015.

Braveboy served a term as chairman of the Maryland Legislative Black Caucus. In 2014, she placed third in the race for attorney general in the Democratic primary, with Brian Frosh emerging as the winner.
