County Executive Elrich and Montgomery County Council members,
It’s time for people across Montgomery County to get back to work.
Small businesses are dying on the vine while big box stores are considered “essential.” It’s not fair and it’s not right.
We all need to take care of one another and protect the most vulnerable among us, but that doesn’t mean we need to give up our liberties in the process.
Tens of millions of Americans have filed for unemployment because of these shutdowns. Sending our economy into a depression is NOT how we’re going to defeat COVID-19.
It’s time to REOPEN the economy and give folks across Montgomery County the OPTION to go back to work.
