Within the midst of the pandemic, the County Council successfully completed the rewriting of the Zoning Ordinance, which had not been done in 50 years. 

Mission &

Calvin Hawkins, who grew up in the rough and tumble Glassmanor Neighborhood located in Oxon Hill, MD, learned the importance of public service from some of the most powerful and well-renown leaders in the area, including District of Columbia Mayor for Life Marion Barry, District of Columbia Council Member Kevin Chavous, former Prince George’s County Executives Wayne Curry, Jack Johnson, Rushern Baker, and Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. Calvin has also benefited immeasurably from the mentorship of Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford of the State of Maryland. 

Council Member Hawkins, a graduate of Oxon Hill High School and Bowie State University, is a citizen's advocate who leads The People's Movement of the Democratic Party.

Indicative of his leadership skills, Hawkins has been elected to serve as County Council Chairman for two consecutive years (2021, 2022). He is a consummate team player who has presided over the Council through the challenges and changes of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Notwithstanding, he has successfully collaborated with federal, state, county, municipal and regional leaders in advancing the agenda of Prince George’s County in its goal of bringing an unprecedented financial resources to the county. Under his leadership as Chair, the Council passed legislation addressing health and human services issues, funding for emergency rental assistance, small businesses grants, and funding for food disparities. A proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Hawkins also is a man of faith and has been the featured speaker at several local churches where his exceptional oratorical skills have been on display.

"The People's Champ".

Affectionately known as "The People's Champ" amongst "The People's Movement," his extensive background in Emergency Management has thoroughly equipped him in planning and execution of government operations. Similarly, his time working closely with two former County Executives has provided deep insight into County government creating a spectrum of a wealth of experience from the grassroots level to the executive C-suite. In December 2021, he received overwhelming support from his colleagues to serve a second year in leadership as the Chair of the County Council. Council Member Calvin S. Hawkins, II, is the grateful husband of Angie Reese Hawkins, proud father of Tori N. Plummer (Chris) and blessed grandfather of Chris, Jr., Jaden and Joshua.
