The incoming Bowie City Council has its eye on technology-oriented economic development and incoming Mayor Tim Adams said he would like to see more cyber security businesses in town.
“Too many good citizens in Bowie get in their cars every day and drive to Fort Meade and NSA and D.C.,” Adams said. “It’d be great if we could make sure they didn’t have to drive, and they could work those jobs from here. Because we have no lack of talent in our city.”
As far as talent is concerned, Adams will be joined by three new council members with backgrounds that complement that vision. At-large member Ingrid Harrison is an outreach manager at the county’s workforce development arm, Employ Prince George’s. District 4 Councilwoman Roxy Ndebumadu leads a team at Microsoft that helps federal customers adopt and manage digital innovations. District 3 Councilman Adrian Boafo is the campaign manager for House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and has worked on Capitol Hill.
