(PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY - May 11, 2009) - I'm saddened to inform you that a champion of MBE advancement and a member of the Prince George's Business and Community Coalition (PGBCC) has gone on to be with the Lord.
Rev. Chet Howard passed on Wednesday May 6, 2009 and we will sorely miss him.
As a member of the PGBCC and a stalwart for MBE causes in both the state and county, Chet worked tirelessly for the advancement of his people to be included in the prosperity that we deserve.
As I get more information on the home going arrangements I will forward them to you.

The Glover Report: MD14: VOTE for Change: Neverdon, Hogan, Rutherford
At least I can live honest and know that I did all that is within my power to effectuate real change in Baltimore and in Maryland. At least I tried to make black folks’ priorities resonate in the minds of elected officials as well as the broader public. Be wise and be sure to make your vote count.
ENDORSEMENT: And so I ask that you, the voter, cast your vote for much-needed change in Baltimore and in Maryland. Write-in Neverdon for Baltimore State’s Attorney; he is more than capable. And do vote for my friend, Boyd Rutherford, and his running mate, Larry Hogan, for governor. Read in Full >>
