Montgomery County Councilmember Hans Riemer and Yenny Delgado, the executive director of Umbrella Initiatives for Education, will be the featured guests talking about increasing access to quality early education and child care 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 hosted by Julie Ríos Little. 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.

On today’s show, Councilmember Riemer will talk about his efforts to provide more options for early childhood education, and for child care, in the County. Yenny Delgado, who works with Hispanic families in the County and abroad, will talk about initiatives to close the achievement gap and to help parents better prepare their children for kindergarten.

A link to an audio replay of each week’s show is available at the County Council’s web site at
