Montgomery County is facing a budget shortfall and across-the-board operating budget cuts of 2%–and warning that’s just a start. Del. Bill Frick is highlighting the cuts to go after his three opponents in the Democratic primary for county executive who have served for many years on the County Council:
It is time for new leadership in Rockville. Our councilmembers ignored warnings from County Executive Leggett to restrain spending. Despite an increase in the recordation tax, and a nearly 9% increase in property taxes, we find ourselves without sufficient revenues to pay for these councilmembers pet projects, and, as a result, public services are being cut. Our county deserves better.
