Our County has become a place where people do not feel safe in their homes and children are not safe in school. Montgomery County Public Schools have devolved from being one of the top public school systems in the nation, to not even being top in the State of Maryland. Our local economy has stagnated and fallen behind Northern Virginia, Prince George's County and Washington, DC. Our residents and business owners feel over-mandated, controlled, and subordinate to local leaders who are tone deaf to the real issues addressing the County.
County residents are fed up and have grown weary with the current County leadership that has propagated the same failed policies and played musical chairs with the same people for 12 years with no real progress. County residents are seeing the worsening violent crime, decline in school performance, increasing debt to finance the County budget, and moribund business and job growth.
I am running for County Executive to bring common sense back to our local government.
I ask for your support.
By Authority - Victoria Birkett, Treasurer
