Comments from the residents of Montgomery County

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

I was informed that you decided to revise your Ride-On Proposed 2008 Savings Plan, and you will no longer be canceling Bus Route 37 in Potomac. I want to express my gratitude to you for this decision.

Public transportation is becoming more and more important in our lives, it helps residents to cope with rapidly growing traffic, it allows to get to work and school on time, it takes many cars off the streets and eliminates the need of hard to find parkings, it protects environment and lowers the onsumption of gasoline, it enables the needy and elderly to get around, it opens communities and unites people. Thank you very much again, Mr. Leggett.

Sincerely yours,

- Margaret

I appreciate your concern for order, as a Montgomery County employee who is affected by the reorganization plan. I realize that some things must be done, in order to more effectively serve "ALL" I don't know what's ahead, but if you are leading, I am following.

I wish to express my thanks to Isiah Leggett and the Montgomery County Council for their efforts related to county cable/video consumer options. I am fortunate in that I am able to retain residence in Maryland while I work in New York. The quality of life here is great. As you can see I work for a major broadcast company, CBS Television.

As a Silver Spring resident, in mid 2007, my cable service quickly deteriorated to little or no video/internet delivery. After three months of patience, cajoling, begging and, I confess, some anger, I finally switched. However, I'm one of the lucky homeowners. Our neighborhood had been wired. I know there are many Maryland neighborhoods that still do not have this option.

I cannot stress enough the importance of the steps you are taking. Some may think these services are "optional". However, in today's wired society, if I didn't have the superior quality of these servcies, I could not live in Maryland. These services allow me to telecommute hundreds of miles from my official office. Without them, I could have needed to move my family to New York taking my "upper income" earnings with me.

Again, my thanks for your efforts.
