Please join us as we welcome Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich to our community meeting at the Schweinhaut Senior Center. He will first brief us on the priorities of his administration before spending the remainder of the meeting answering questions, and listening and responding to your observations and concerns.
Marc Elrich was sworn into office on December 3, 2018 as Montgomery County’s seventh elected Executive. As an At-large member of the County Council for 12 years prior to last year’s election, he represented each and every County resident. Before that, he served 19 years on the Takoma Park City Council, while teaching at Rolling Terrace Elementary School for 17 of those years. While Mr. Elrich has remained a strong advocate for middle class and lower-income individuals and families, for environmental and consumer protections, and for tenant rights throughout his long career in public service, he perhaps is most widely known for his consistent opposition to excessive, unsustainable land use and development policies, along with his insistence that developers pay their fair share of the additional public services and infrastructure costs that their projects have generated.
This is a great opportunity for all of us to interact, “up close and personal,” with
the head of our County government, so we hope to see you there!
