Maryland Matters: Montgomery County Can Thrive Without Raising Property Taxes

On Monday, February 12, from 6-7:30 p.m., get a start on Valentine’s Week by joining many of your neighbors at Quincy’s in Gaithersburg to meet Neil, a top candidate for an at-large seat on the Montgomery County Council.

Providing the best in education means paying for the best teachers and administrators.

Maintaining good roads cannot be an afterthought—it is part of planning for the County’s future.
This tax does not help protect the environment, and consumers deserve a break.
We need to continue to have the best-trained and most experienced public safety employees.
Nonprofits should spend less time pleading for government funds so they can spend more time helping those in need.
We need to keep modernizing and adapting to produce libraries that serve the needs of current and future generations.
The government must help all of these organizations be more efficient as part of our support of them.
We need to improve and enforce recycling policies and better connect hiking and biking trails in the County that highlight our natural assets.
Neil is a lifelong progressive Democrat, but he understands why some people in Montgomery County are registered as independents or with other parties. However, the crucial part of this election is the Democratic primary in June 2018, and to help Neil, you must be a registered Democrat to vote in the primary.
Even if you are registered as a Democrat for just a short time, you must register as a Democrat at least 21 days prior to the primary (deadline: by 9 p.m. on June 5, 2018).
