Rockville, MD – Today, Montgomery County Executive-Elect Marc Elrich announced the members of his Transition Team. Marc’s transition team will focus on developing the “first drafts” of strategic plans to guide the administration in focusing on seven Priority Outcomes reflecting the goals that he championed during his campaign. Marc believes the best policies are both data-driven and compassionate, and that county government must be transparent and accountable to residents. Andrew Kleine was named as Transition Team Chair.
“I am very thankful and appreciative to the individuals who agreed to serve on my transition team,” said Marc Elrich.. “I am proud that we attracted a diverse group of Montgomery County residents and stakeholders who are willing to share their talents and experiences to help my administration govern. I encourage all residents to attend our upcoming listening sessions and visit our transition website at http://www.elrichtransition.com to meet Transition Team members, follow the updates of Transition Team, and share their thoughts with us.”
The Transition Team met for the first time today at the East County Community Center in Silver Spring. The Transition Team was divided into the Priority Outcomes groups below to make life in Montgomery County better in measurable ways. Marc will work closely with the County Council, the community, and other partners to fill in the details of these plans, execute them, and report to residents regularly on how things are going.
- Thriving Youth and Families
- A Growing Economy
- A Greener County
- Easier Commutes
- A More Affordable and Welcoming County
- Safe Neighborhoods
- Effective, Sustainable Government
Additionally, Marc previously announced five listening sessions in Potomac (11/15), Germantown (11/17), Silver Spring (11/27), Olney (11/29), and Takoma Park (12/1). For more information about these listening sessions, please click here.
