Why I Am Running

Montgomery County is an amazing place. I was born and raised here. It is one of the fastest-growing and diverse counties in the nation. My wife, Michele, and I chose to stay and raise our three daughters here in Montgomery County. We know they will grow up surrounded by people who want the same as we want: a vibrant, welcoming and diverse home. This is the Montgomery County promise.

But I also know that we have many people in Montgomery County who are struggling. Montgomery County’s promise doesn’t extend to them. We need new leaders in Rockville with fresh ideas to help Montgomery County keep its promise to all of its people. That is why I am running for Montgomery County Council At-Large, and why I am asking for your vote.

If I earn the honor of serving you on the county council, I promise I will fight for affordable and accessible child care, to give students the best education and training possible, to support small businesses and grow our local economy through smart planning and effective policies. And I will work to provide our aging neighbors who helped build Montgomery County the support, dignity, and respect they deserve.

Our campaign is focused on what we urgently need to do for retain the Montgomery County promise for all. That’s supporting our youth, Aging Americans, Smart Growth and Economic Opportunity. Put together, these issues will help Montgomery County to prosper and be true to the progressive social values that we all hold dear.
