A Message from Mayor Candace Hollingsworth

Dear Residents and Visitors,
Welcome to our digital home!
My family and I moved to Hyattsville in 2009 and we have been happy to call it home ever since. It has been an honor serving on the Hyattsville City Council for the last four years and I have enjoyed getting to know you and work on the issues that are important to you.  As Mayor, we will to continue to work together to build a world-class city that is a model for excellence by any measure.
We have accomplished much in recent years and I hope to do even more in the years to come. My goal is to build a culture of openness and accountability that keeps all of us—residents, staff, business owners, and elected officials—informed and engaged. I also look forward to enhancing the quality of our City services to ensure that every resident can benefit from all that Hyattsville has to offer, no matter where they live.
If you’re visiting Hyattsville, we hope you find many reasons to come back. We have been successful at maintaining our small town charm while still providing access to sought after amenities. With two metro stations and three commercial corridors within three square miles, we are home to a diverse and growing community of families, young professionals, and retirees alike. In Hyattsville, our savvy entrepreneurs, artists, residents, and public servants work hand-in-hand to make this city a great place to live, work, and play.

I invite you to come to a Council meeting, contact your elected officials and be involved. It is important to me that your voice is heard. I look forward to working with you to ensure that Hyattsville continues to grow in its beauty, safety, inclusiveness, and financial viability.
Yours truly,
Candace B. Hollingsworth
