Many have gotten used to working remotely since the pandemic, but there was an ugly debate this week in Prince George’s County, Maryland, over whether to allow council members on the all-Democrat council to vote remotely.
The effort involves the county’s first pregnant council member and how that would impact her upcoming maternity leave.
Krystal Oriadha, who represents Prince George’s County’s 7th District, was moved to tears discussing it during an interview with News4.
“Sorry. I feel overwhelmed and I feel disheartened and I feel scared, to be honest,” she said. “The pregnancy has been scary for me.”
