WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT MARTIN
"I first met Martin after he invited me to Prince George's County Young Democrats meeting. I attended the meeting and was quickly impressed by his leadership skills and dedication. His candidacy represents the exact type of progressive, young, black leader that we need in Prince George's County. I proudly endorse Martin Mitchell for Laurel City Council."
— Scott Cecil, City Councilmember, Mount Rainer, MD - Ward 2
Martin is a proud resident of the City of Laurel where he's lived for the last 25 years. He graduated from Laurel High School, then from Bowie State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in History & Government.
Currently, he serves as President of PGCYD (Prince George’s County Young Democrats). While he has a passion for public service and policy, he also spends countless hours mentoring and coaching young wrestlers of all levels and ages in Laurel, throughout Prince George’s County and other surrounding areas in Maryland. 4 years ago, Martin was appointed by City of Laurel Mayor Craig A. Moe to the City’s Board of Appeals, where he still currently serves.
Martin enthusiastically organizes people and loves engaging with the community. Much of his service involves participating in mutual aid projects, advocating for transit-oriented development and efficient and smart public transportation for the many, not the few. As a strong community organizer and advocate "for the people'', Martin continues to lead and promote positive change, all while raising twin sons, Julian and Jaiden, in this beautiful city he calls home.
