As your Commissioner, I will demand responsibility in Montgomery County government;
- Oppose Tax Increases, - Prioritize Spending, - Preserve Open Space, - Protect County Assets, - Fund Earned Employee Pensions, - Restore Debt Rating & - End Politics-as-Usual
Under the former Board of Commissioners, Moody’s downgraded Montgomery County’s bond rating and lowered the county’s economic outlook from “stable” to “negative.”
In response, the board had been selling off county assets to cover poor financial practices. I believe this will only further weaken our county and ultimately result in another bond rating downgrade that will increase the costs of debt.
If we don't change course, the mismanagement of the County will result in higher taxes.
