Duties and Responsibilities of the Office

The Office of the County Executive (CEX) provides political leadership to the community, through County Executive Ike Leggett and his staff, and administrative direction to the County’s executive branch departments under the supervision of the Chief Administrative Officer and his staff.

"Montgomery County is a great place to live, raise a family, grow a business, and earn a paycheck. We are going to keep what’s working, fix what’s not, and make sure everybody – everybody – gets a seat at the table when decisions are made."
- Ike Leggett

The County Executive oversees the enforcement of the laws of Montgomery County and provides Executive direction to all departments and offices of the County government. The County Executive also develops policies; proposes plans, programs, budgets, and legislation to the County Council; adopts Executive Orders and Regulations and appoints residents to boards, committees, and commissions. Each month, staff publishes the Montgomery County Register, which makes available to the public information on proposed, adopted and temporary regulations issued by the County Executive and Boards and Commissions, as well as other important bulletins.
