Upcounty Action meets Jan 24th

Upcounty Action will meet Saturday January 24th at 2:00 PM in the Panera in Germantown near the Wegmans.  Please come early and pick up lunch or a snack if you wish.  I will try to get there early and reserve the large meeting table.
The address is: 20680 Seneca Meadows Parkway, Germantown, MD 20876
There are many issues at hand now as the new Council, new Governor and recently elected state Assembly members are all getting ready to address important proposed measures with reduced finances.   The County Executive is already holding talks about his budget proposals.  The new Governor-elect seemed reluctant to commit many financial resources to Montgomery County when he spoke here in December.Will the Purple Line get approval for the go ahead final planning phases?  What will happen with the CCT and the plans for BRT?  We have over 400 temporary classrooms; will there be state dollars for new schools or classrooms?
The Council has been on hiatus; the legislature is just being sworn in and the new Governor does not take office until January 21st.  He has to present a budget and will most likely use the budget worked out by the O’Malley administration.  So we already have a lot of items to review.  So I will look forward to hearing from you about suggestions for the agenda – I will send it out the week of the meeting.  Please bring others with you and do let me know if you will be able to join us.   Thanks again for all of your support in 2014 and all of the years since we started back in 2006.
Try to stay warm, think Spring!
