Montgomery County Councilmember Nancy Floreen will be the featured guest 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). Among the topics she will talk about are how more women can get involved in politics and the important aspects of the new annual County operating budget, which the Council tentatively approved yesterday.
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 Floreen also will talk about what steps must be taken to produce more affordable housing in all parts of the County.
Today’s show also will have a segment with Alexandra Arata on the strategic plan of the County’s Department of Economic Development’s small business division in regard to the rapidly changing Wheaton area.
A link to an audio replay of each week’s show is available at the County Council’s web site at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/council
