Economic Developmet

Montgomery County’s economy hadn’t fully recovered from the Great Recession when the coronavirus pandemic started. We lagged in private employment growth and business formation. 


Our public schools have a long and proud tradition of greatness, but the standard we’ve come to expect isn’t being maintained in all our schools today. Prior to the pandemic MCPS had a racial equity problem – now after semesters without in-person learning the problem for black and brown students is likely a crisis.


Montgomery County should fight climate change with the same vigor as we battle the coronavirus. Climate change is our other major public health threat. While we must promote environmentally friendly mobility options to reduce carbon emissions, we must also continue to reduce our climate footprint by taking steps to eliminate plastic waste.


The pandemic has created opportunities to improve our transportation system, making it more efficient, more personalized and cleaner. We should be reevaluating our countywide bus services to ensure routes can service people who depend on buses to get to work and school. 

I’m running for Montgomery County Executive again because I believe I have what it takes to lead the County forward, with bold, innovative ideas that unite us and make us better.
