Earth Day Legislation Passes

I am proud that our Council honored Earth Day in the best manner possible.  We did not simply talk about or reaffirm our commitment to a greener planet in the abstract.  Instead, we unanimously approved 9 bills that I introduced which will achieve meaningful results in positioning Montgomery County as a national leader in reducing our consumption of energy as well as promoting the use of more clean, renewable energy.

Road Repair & Utility Work - Bradley Boulevard

Bradley Boulevard, which is maintained by the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) and serves as a primary commuter and transit route through my district, has been the site of an ongoing WSSC restoration project. I recently sent a letter to the SHA and WSSC asking that they reevaluate their permitting process for work along roads such as Bradley Boulevard to ensure that mistakes seen with this project - frequent road closures, nighttime work on the weekends, and the general pace of the utility work - do not happen again. I am grateful that the WSSC responded in a timely manner, stating that that they are moving away from lowest-bid contracting and have recently been utilizing other selection.
