I was sad to see the Makiyah Wilson story on the front cover, because it reminded me of the sometimes awful and unfair world we live in. The Informer’s writer Sam P.K. Collins did a wonderful job with the article, and I felt as though I was at the vigil and I could feel the emotions of the residents. I hope The Informer continues to follow this story and provide updates on the criminals who did this. Justice for Makiyah Wilson.

Baker, Jealous Exemplify Unity

I have a few comments about the July 26 edition of The Washington Informer. Of course, they are all positive. As a resident of Prince George’s County, I was happy to see [outgoing] County Executive Rushern Baker and Maryland gubernatorial hopeful Ben Jealous come together to promote economic inclusivity. Although they were once fierce opponents, they are now coming together for the benefit of Maryland residents. Two fine gentlemen and I support them both.
