Northern VA, Prince George's County, and Washington, DC beat Montgomery County on Job and Economic Growth

Our local economy has stagnated and fallen behind Northern Virginia, Prince George's County and even Washington, DC. Our residents and business owners feel over-mandated, controlled, and subordinate to local leaders who are tone deaf to the real economic issues facing the County.

Montgomery County’s economic growth has been in freefall as a result of the policies of the current County Executive and County Council. The performance gap between the Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, Fairfax, and Washington, DC, has widened. The result is that Montgomery County is losing jobs to other regions reducing our economic stability, tax base, and growth potential. The County is now in a downward spiral as high tax rates discourage private sector investment.  The slow rates of growth result in reduction of the tax base, which further results in reduced capital spending and higher tax rates--all of which further discourages investment and limits economic opportunities for all.

We need to encourage private investment. Accelerating economic growth and expanding the tax base will result in a combination of more spending on infrastructure and reduced tax burdens.

As your County Executive, I will work to spur private investment, which will create new high-paying jobs and raise the standard of living for all without raising tax rates.
