Kevin M. Harris has lived in Brandywine, Maryland’s Lakeview community for eight years. Born and raised in Newark, New Jersey, Kevin graduated St. Benedict’s Preparatory High School and because of an urge to serve his country he enlisted in the United States Navy in 1999.

He has established a distinguished record of service during his 10-year career. Commander of the USS Fletcher, Dell Epperson stated that “Kevin has a natural command presence, a rare gift for such a young sailor.”

Why Kevin M. Harris Is Running in this Election

My passion for serving others began during my childhood and continues. People fall into two broad categories–they either solve problems or they just talk about them. I believe that each of us has a role to play in making our world, our community, and our families work better. Instead of just grousing about it, I’ve chosen to roll up my sleeves and see what I can do to serve people.

What areas of improvement does Kevin M. Harris sees the district needs?

This is a district where people are coming in steady numbers to raise their families. I believe we must provide our community, our district, our families with all of the resources that support steady growth. These include:

  • A strong public education system where the money we spend makes it to the classrooms.
  • Job creation by supporting our local small businesses and encouraging economic development. Good jobs will help families thrive and meet their goals.
  • Improve public safety by supporting community policing so that neighborhoods can work with police to reduce crime.
  • Better roads, well-planned transit options, and other Investments in our transportation system to reduce traffic congestion.
  • A Public Health System that provides top-notch care for all of our families.

How would Kevin M. Harris govern?

My goal is to govern in a way the people deserve, which is with complete honesty. Prince George’s residents deserve to have representatives they can trust. I would govern in a way that will give our youth hope and our seniors pride.
