Hi, I'm Brandon
WHERE I COME FROM
I was born and raised in Indian Head, MD. I attended Indian Head Elementary, General Smallwood Middle School, and Henry E. Lackey High School. I love this community and all it has provided me. Like the opportunity to meet the love of my life, work locally, and give back to the community that raised me. That's why I ran for Mayor, obtained my college education (CSM, SNHU), and work here without leaving my hometown. I want to create more opportunities for others to Live, Learn, Work, and Play in Indian Head MD.
Elected when I was only 19, I have always had the passion to improve my community. When I was only 10, I led an effort to improve crosswalk safety. Since then, I have embarked on an effort to revitalize my hometown. We have made amazing strides in new development, new jobs, business growth, infrastructure improvements, and improvements and additions to our parks. However, we still have a long way to go! With Indian Head now being a HubZone, Opportunity Zone, and Sustainable Community we have laid the groundwork for more success and economic development in Town! The CSM Velocity Center (opened in late 2020) is acting as the economic development catalyst we anticipated. New businesses are investing and old properties/buildings are being redeveloped. I am proud to be a part of the team that is revitalizing Indian Head!
Live, Learn, Work, and Play
Every community deserves to be a place to Live, Learn, Work, and Play. These 4 pillars outline a bigger vision and future for Indian Head.
LIVE - Many people call Indian Head home and it's a great place to grow up. Creating a diversity of housing of housing options to help Indian Head grow and thrive is important for the town's future.
LEARN - Every person deserves a quality education, opportunities for learning, and access to higher education. In Indian Head we are creating more portals for learning with the introduction of our Youth/Family readiness center, the CSM Velocity Center, and working in tandem with our local schools to promote local government and being involved within the community.
WORK - Creating employment opportunities and local jobs reduce traffic regionally, improve communities, improve quality of life, and boost the local economy! Additionally, businesses contribute to the local tax base and reduce the government's reliance on YOUR property taxes. Having more career oriented employment in Indian Head just makes sense for everyone!
PLAY - Everyone enjoys a bicycle ride through nature, a friendly neighborhood park, and a place to have fun! Parks, attractions, events, and nature are all great things that improve our quality of life. Expanding on what we do well, improving what we have, and building new attractions to highlight Indian Head's natural qualities are what we must do to make Indian Head a great place to play.
