Kimblyn Persaud is Chair of Nine Districts for MoCo.
Congratulations! We have been officially notified by the Board of Elections that Nine Districts for MoCo has been certified with more than the necessary 10,000 signatures, and will be Question D on the General Election ballot.
None of this would have happened without your support, but it’s not over!
On August 4th, just one day after we delivered our petitions, the Montgomery County Council suspended their rules of procedure and took counter action against us. Rejecting the Charter Review Commission’s recommendation for no action and without holding a public hearing on their proposal, the Council decided to place an alternative question on the ballot. Their referendum expands the Council to 11 members, maintaining the 4 at-large Council seats. The Council, once again, is demonstrating their disconnect from the people.
Montgomery County is experiencing the worst economic crisis in history; businesses have closed their doors, evictions are looming, and people have lost their jobs.
For the first time, the county government has applied for a line of credit.
Yet, despite all that, the Council still proposed the addition of two more District Council seats, which will include eight staff members and a need to renovate office space.
Enough is enough! Montgomery County needs a more responsive County Council that we can hold accountable, not more government that we will have to pay for. Nine Districts for MoCo is our opportunity to change this!
