MONTGOMERY COUNTY TRANSPORTATION FORUM Montgomery County Council Candidates Share Their Views Thursday, May 29th, 7:00-9:00pm | Silver Spring Civic Building (Metro: Silver Spring) RSVP here on FacebookAll candidates for County Council seats are invited to participate, creating a terrific opportunity for the public to hear directly from a number of the candidates. This is strictly an educational event since some of the co-sponsors are 501(c)(3) non-profits and cannot and do not endorse candidates. The forum is co-sponsored by Coalition for Smarter Growth, Purple Line Now, Action Committee for Transit, Montgomery County Sierra Club, Montgomery Countryside Alliance, Washington Area Bicyclist Association, and the TAME Coalition.
As Montgomery County continues to grow, what are the county’s best approaches to transportation and development for a more sustainable and equitable future? Join Coalition for Smarter Growth, WABA and WAMU reporter Martin DiCaro to learn what the candidates for County Council think about these critical and interconnected issues. Candidates will be prepared to discuss a range of transportation issues and answer questions about funding prioritizes, building better transit, increasing bicycling through protected bike lanes, and making the streets safer for pedestrians.
