Upper Marlboro Mayor Tonga Turner Resigns

Tonga Y. Turner, the first Black mayor of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, will serve her last day as mayor and president of the board of commissioners June 21.

The town posted Turner’s resignation letter on its Facebook page at 11:54 p.m. Monday.

Turner’s resignation comes after just two years in office. She wrote in the letter about the town “has been plagued with a dark history and past,” but mainly elaborated on various accomplishments such as securing $800,000 in grants, the largest amount received in the town’s history.

“My hope is that in the past two years under my leadership, each of you has seen the great promise of our future,” she wrote. “I am truly excited about what the future holds for the town and what the future holds for me as we both embark on new journeys.”
