Prince George’s County social justice activist Ashanti Martinez is poised to fill the District 22 House vacancy created when Alonzo T. Washington ascended to a Senate seat in Annapolis, bolstering the diverse group of voices representing county residents. Martinez, 26, was the only person to apply to the open seat by the Tuesday deadline, after early interest from competitors with more years of political experience, such as artist Rushern “Rush” Baker IV, son of former Prince George’s County executive Rushern L. Baker III, and the University of Maryland’s associate director of government relations, Molly Mckee-Seabrook.
