Statement by Sharon L. Cohen to the
Montgomery County Council Regarding the Charter Review Commission’s 2018
Recommendation and the Minority Report Recommendation
July 10, 2018
Good afternoon. I am Sharon Cohen, a life long resident of Montgomery County Maryland. I serve on the Executive Board of the Montgomery County Republican Central Committee, but I speak solely on my own behalf today and in strong support of the Minority’s Report recommendation that, “now is the time to consider changing the make up the County Council by having more smaller and more responsive council districts.” Yes, now is the time to eliminate all At-Large County Council seats and then redraw the nine Councilmatic seats to represent contiguous, smaller, similar and like-minded communities.
