Dear Concerned Voter:
Thank you for signing the non-partisan term limits petition for Montgomery County.
We did it! You and nearly 18,000 registered voters in Montgomery County signed the term limits petition (only 10,000 signatures were required). The signatures were submitted on August 8, which means you’ll be able to vote on the term limits question on the November 2016 general election ballot. When passed -- and we need your vote to pass the measure -- it will limit County Council members and the County Executive to serving no more than three consecutive terms, or 12 years.
This Wednesday, August 24, you will have an opportunity to support term limits at a Montgomery County Charter Commission hearing. Here is information about the hearing: http://www2.montgomerycountymd.gov/mcgportalapps/Press_Detail.aspx?Item_ID=16281. In order to testify, you must notify the commission in advance by e-mailing them at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can't attend, but still want to convey your support for the term limits petition; email the commission at the same e-mail address in the previous sentence. If you don’t want to speak out publicly on the 24th, please come to the hearing and stand with your neighbors in support of term limits for the County Council and County Executive.
If you want to know how you can help or need more information, let us know.
