Why I’m Running.
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Montgomery County is a great place to live and work. However, we are facing challenges that demand innovative solutions. Our population has almost doubled in the past 40 years, leading to overcrowded schools, horrible traffic congestion and higher taxes. With the real threat of shrinking resources from the federal government and a slow growing economy right here at home -- we need a leader on the County Council who has a vision for a better Montgomery County.
My vision for our County is a safe and welcoming community with a booming economy, excellent schools and a fast transportation system, where residents are engaged and empowered to better their lives and their community.
Our County faces many dynamic challenges ahead, and I believe that strong, engaged, and accountable leaders serving on the County Council is critical. That’s the kind of leadership I want to deliver as your next Montgomery County Councilmember, At-Large, and why I respectfully ask for your support and your vote.
