Montgomery County is a dynamic and diverse community with strengths to build upon. Our schools and our job base, our parks and our neighborhoods provide a very high quality of life. We have challenges, too, to meet the growing needs of the people who make up our changing community. We must improve educational opportunities and invest in transportation infrastructure and housing. We must grow our talented workforce and compete more effectively for jobs. We can accomplish these goals by upholding our tradition of responsive, progressive local governance. I ask for your support to keep us moving forward together.
