Remember back in 2011, when the Montgomery County Council put out a "report" on artificial turf? That report was put together by County and MCPS staff and included a representative from just one plastic grass manufacturer. FieldTurf, the no-bid choice of MCPS, had a representative on the workgroup that put out the Montgomery County report.
Parents were not allowed on the workgroup and neither were natural grass installers. The workgroup met in secret, and there were no meeting dates, agendas, or minutes.
It should come as no surprise to anyone that the Montgomery County "report" is now being used to sell FieldTurf artificial turf.
