Montgomery County Council Vice President George Leventhal will talk about healthcare availability and Marisela Villamil will discuss small business development programs at 2 p.m. TODAY on Sintonía con el Concejo del Condado de Montgomery (Tuned In with the Montgomery County Council), a weekly show on Radio America (WACA 1540 AM).

The Montgomery County Council and Radio America have entered into a community partnership that provides the Latino community with key information on issues and programs and provides a forum for residents to express views and ask questions of Councilmembers. The partnership includes the 30-minute weekly show at 2 p.m. each Friday on the Washington Region’s most popular Spanish language station.

The show is co-hosted by Julie Ríos Little and Alexandra Arata. Each week, the show features guests talking about important issues before the Council and also provides information about programs offered by the County to help residents and businesses. A regular focus of the show is on small business owners telling their stories of success.

Council Vice President Leventhal, who chairs the Council’s Health and Human Services Committee, will talk about a variety of subjects on today’s show, including Montgomery Cares, which is recognized as one of the nation’s best programs in providing healthcare to low-income families. He also will talk about the Council's support of the Real Food for Kids program that would provide healthier food at Montgomery County Public Schools cafeterias.

Marisela Villamil is a project manager at Hispanic Business Center of the Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC) based at the University of Maryland. She will talk about the services provided at the center and will provide information on how business owners can participate in a business conference scheduled for early May.
