It goes without saying that Montgomery County is special to me: I was born and raised here and my beautiful wife of 32 years, Barbara, and I have raised our five children here. It is even more special because, over the years, your friendship and support have always inspired me to serve you, to make this the best county in America.
After taking some much-needed time to focus on my health, I'm feeling better than ever. I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and once again provide the kind of strong leadership that our county warrants. Montgomery County deserves more than the blame-game politics that have become commonplace; Montgomery County needs more than ever a proven, progressive leader who would rather focus on solutions and is bold enough to execute them.
I'm concerned about our future; I'm concerned about growing jobs and strengthening our economy, about making our nationally recognized school system even better and about finding real solutions to our transportation challenges.
You and I know from experience that Montgomery County can't move forward by standing still. I hope you'll join me, once again, as we fight to keep Montgomery County the best place in America to live, work and raise a family.
I'm ready to get started. Are you?
