Montgomery County Council to Host White Flint / Kensington / Garrett Park/ North Bethesda Areas Town Hall Meeting On Wednesday, Nov. 18

Residents Invited to Express Their Views on Issues, Ask Questions of
Councilmembers at Tilden Middle School

ROCKVILLE, Md., November 9, 2009—The Montgomery County Council will continue
its efforts to find out what issues most concern residents when it hosts a
Town Hall Meeting for the White Flint / Kensington / Garrett Park / North
Bethesda area on Wednesday, Nov. 18. The meeting at Tilden Middle School
will start at 8 p.m. A pre-meeting reception will begin at 7:30 p.m.

This will be the third Town Hall Meeting hosted by the Council in 2009. The
Council is composed of President Phil Andrews, Vice President Roger Berliner
and Councilmembers Marc Elrich, Valerie Ervin, Nancy Floreen, Mike Knapp,
George Leventhal, Nancy Navarro and Duchy Trachtenberg. The Council
previously held Town Hall Meetings this year in Germantown/Boyds and West
Gaithersburg/Darnestown areas. Most meetings have attracted more than 200

Tilden Middle School is located at 11211 Old Georgetown Road between the
Wildwood section of Bethesda and the southern area of Rockville, adjacent to
White Flint.

The meeting will allow residents to let the Councilmembers know how they
feel about specific issues and will allow them to ask questions of the
Councilmembers in an organized, but informal, setting.

Topics expected to be of interest include the proposed White Flint Sector
Plan, schools, public safety, traffic, growth, the County budget and taxes.

“In many ways, our County is facing one of its most difficult periods in a
very long time. We are all in this together and we want residents to tell us
about their most important concerns as we approach making important
decisions about growth in this area,” said Council President Andrews. “This
Council has made a priority of having better direct communication with
residents, and Town Hall Meetings have proven to be an excellent way to do
just that. For the citizens, these meetings provide a forum where they can
see their elected officials in a different format than a televised meeting
or through a news release.”

The meeting will be taped for later broadcast on County Cable Montgomery
(CCM—cable Channel 6 on Comcast and RCN, Channel 30 on Verizon). Susan
Kenedy, a producer for the county station, will moderate the meeting.
