Connecting With Your Community

President Obama’s coming out in support of same sex marriage has only emphasized what we in Montgomery County already believed: dignity and equality are values meant for all of the members in our community. Who you love or where you were born should not determine your status or treatment in this country or in our County.

This week, I had the opportunity to engage with members of our community whom are practicing their English conversation skills while exploring their rights and responsibilities as Montgomery County residents. This is an East County class called “Connecting with your Community”. I was surprised when told that I was the first Montgomery County Councilmember they have ever met! I look forward to continuing my communication with the students and am eager to see them actively engaged and connected to our community. Below is a picture of me with these great students.
