Montgomery County in Their Own Words

VISION
A MORE EQUITABLE & INCLUSIVE MONTGOMERY COUNTY
THRIVING YOUTH & FAMILIES
Children need great schools, supportive families, & caring communities to help them succeed in life. We can give them the start they need by providing adequate funding for public schools, access to affordable early childhood education & expanded high school options, & support for programs that relieve stress on families through increased access to affordable housing & better-paying jobs.

A GROWING ECONOMY
A healthy business community is essential to our success. We will reinvigorate the county’s direct involvement in economic activities by re-examining our regulations to make sure they are sensible, fair, and efficient; opening support centers that help both new & existing businesses; & developing an incubator & innovation climate to help local entrepreneurs bring their ideas into the world.

A GREENER COUNTY
We recognize the urgency of global warming & will take concrete steps to address climate change. County government has committed to zero Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2035, an ambitious – but achievable – target. We will reduce our footprint by pursuing clean energy, energy efficiency, enhanced building design, reduction of waste, & developing a better transit system for our residents.

EASIER COMMUTES
Moving people & goods more efficiently is an economic imperative & is essential to our quality of life. We will reduce traffic congestion by improving transit options, supporting Metro, encouraging telecommuting & implementing common-sense road improvements.

A MORE AFFORDABLE & WELCOMING COUNTY FOR A LIFETIME
We will focus on initiatives that make Montgomery County a place where all residents can pursue their dreams regardless of race, ethnicity, age, or economic circumstances.

SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS
We will address crime & pedestrian safety issues and seek input from communities across the county on ways to address these issues. We plan to enhance opportunities for walking, biking, &, creating neighborhood gathering places.

EFFECTIVE, SUSTANINABLE GOVERNMENT
We will partner with County employees to make County Government more cost-effective and to deliver services more efficiently and responsively.
