Letter: Out-of-Touch County Council

Letter: Out-of-Touch County Council

— Finally, the Montgomery County Council issues a Request for Proposal to turn an organic farm on Brickyard Road into a soccer complex. Interesting timing. Only after a persistent uproar from the people whose communities would be impacted by such a complex, did the County Council issue this proposal.

Without the community uproar over lack of transparency and the failure of Council Member Berliner to bring the soccer complex initiative to the attention of his constituents, the farmer on Brickyard might have harvested his last crops.

Potomac residents finally are waking up to the conduct of their elected officials. Not only are we paying their salaries, now we have to pay to defend ourselves against their egregious — and quite possibly illegal — behavior. What a county!

Exploring property values across the Potomac,
