Mike Lyles, Candidate for State's Attorney for Prince George's County
By Authority of Friends of Mike Lyles. Vivian Jenkins, Treasurer.
|Description||One of my first jobs was serving as Deputy General Counsel for the District of Columbia’s Child and Family Services Agency where I saw first-hand what broken parents and guardians can do to abuse and neglect children. We worked hard in a contentious bureaucratic environment to rebuild an agency and reduce the numbers children suffering some of the worst kind of abuse and neglect. I also brought my legal knowledge and experience to bear through a variety of other professional positions and elected and appointed posts in Prince George’s County and elsewhere. From serving two terms as a Bowie City Councilman helping to oversee city services and a 30 Million dollar budget, to providing top-notch legal representation to County agencies as an Associate County Attorney. My reputation as a community champion led to invitations to serve on numerous boards and advisory groups namely the Bowie State University Board of Visitors which I chaired for seven years and currently and as the secretary of the Dean’s Board of Advisors for the School of Business and Public Administration at the University of the District of Columbia, and in 2010 serving as Chairman of the Economic Development Committee of the Prince George’s County Chamber of Commerce while simultaneously serving as its General Counsel. I am a proud member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and in 2014, I was unanimously elected to the international governing board as its General Counsel, managing all legal affairs of the organization world-wide.|
