About Abby

Abby Snyder moved to the City of Bowie at age 2, has since graduated from Bowie High School, and received a
Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Towson University.

By age 13, Abby received a proclamation from Mayor G. Frederick Robinson for over 300 hours of service to the City of Bowie and its residents. She began her leadership experience in high school, serving as President of her youth group at Temple Solel,
Vice President of Membership and Philanthropy Chairman for Delta Delta Delta, and a 3 year position
as Department Coordinator at Sughrue Mion, PLLC before assuming her latest role as legal secretary
for two Partners at that firm. 

She is now ready to take the next step toward giving back to her community.

Growing up in the City of Bowie has led Abby to where she is today. She believes our community
is extremely inclusive, and wants there to be opportunities for others to move here to raise their
children in the city which has been ranked as the best to live in the State of Maryland.

As a resident who has stood up for projects she believes in, she wants to ensure that the
council listens to residential requests for new amenities and services. Ensuring that the City of
Bowie remains financially stable, upholds its balanced budget and maintains its AAA bond rating
is a priority. She believes that accessibility to our city’s outstanding services for the residents
must continue to be a significant focus for the council, as well as ensuring that the phenomenal
City of Bowie Police Department is given the tools they need to continue to protect our city well. 

Abby would like to be the strong, young female voice on the City Council. She is ready and
willing to represent her District 1 constituents.

There truly are not words to thank all of you for your support over the past few months. I went into this campaign blind but with passion, and walked out 3 months later with 1/3 of District 1 in my corner. It is an amazing accomplishment, but something I could have never done on my own. Your support, words of encouragement, donations, canvassing, electioneering, tissues when I was crying, and pride in my fight to win the City Council seat are what kept me going each time I thought I might not really be cut out for the race. ​​​​​

The final results:
    Abigail F. Snyder — 785

    Michael Esteve — 1,659

As tough as this loss is, a friend reminded me that of that saying "lost the battle, but won the war." I like to think of this outcome that way. Now...off to win that war!

With appreciation and gratitude,
