Getting it Done for Montgomery County

Roger has a long record of working with Montgomery County residents to improve our quality of life by tackling the issues that matter most:

Creating Greater Economic Prosperity for All

All Montgomery County residents deserve a chance at achieving the American Dream.  We can extend the ladder of economic opportunity both up and down by building on Roger’s achievements on economic prosperity.

Finding Smart, Effective and Safe Transportation Solutions

Tackling the diverse transportation needs of our County requires new transit options such as the Purple Line and Bus Rapid Transit, targeted and efficient upgrades to our roads, and restoring Metro to a world-class system. As chairman of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, Roger worked with officials from across the region to address Metro’s needs and continues to fight to get WMATA back on track. …

Working for Strong Schools

As enrollment grows in our county’s schools, Roger has worked in close concert with educators and PTA leaders to get more resources for increased capacity needs and to reduce the achievement gap. …

Ensuring Environmental Sustainability

No matter what President Trump does, Montgomery County must continue its trailblazing work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, protect our streams and maintain our tree canopy. …

Keeping the Lights On and Protecting Consumers

It wasn’t too long ago when power outages were a daily concern.  Roger called for an investigation into Pepco’s poor reliability and drafted state legislation that led to new reliability standards and financial penalties if those standards are not met.  It is not a coincidence that Pepco’s performance has improved.  …

Supporting Development Where it Belongs

As one of the Council’s leading smart growth advocates, Roger supports growth around transit and has fought development that promotes sprawl, threatens the environment and overwhelms existing neighborhoods. …

Seniors

By the year 2020, seniors will represent 20% of the county’s population. Roger has worked since his first days on the Council to make it easier for seniors to live in and enjoy our county. …
