I am running for County Executive because we need to make Montgomery work. Together, we need to focus on creating jobs and strengthening our economy, making our nationally-recognized school system even better and finding real solutions to our transportation challenges while embracing technology and protecting our environment.
By working together, being proactive in our approach and progressive in our actions, we can tackle the challenges of the future and make Montgomery work. I know because we’ve done it before. We weathered two recessions, revitalized downtown Silver Spring, reduced class sizes in our public schools, and fought for more funding from Annapolis.
It goes without saying that this place is special to me. I was born and raised here. I met my beautiful wife of 33 years, Barbara, here and we raised our five children here. It is also special because, over the years, your friendship and support have always inspired me.
I am ready to lead and help our County make the right decisions for our future. We all know that you can’t move forward by standing still, so I hope you will join me so that, together, we can make Montgomery work.
