More Impetus for Joining Us March 9 in Annapolis
The economic case for the value of the project remains compelling, Montgomery County Executive Leggett makes the case that the project is critical for the 85,000 to 100,000 jobs in the pipeline in Montgomery County, and that's without even counting the benefit for Prince George's and the rest of the state. Another state-wide polls has shown that the line has seventy percent support among those that have heard at least a little about it. On top of these numbers, we're also excited to share a new video made by students at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring. They do a great job of laying out the case for and against the line and showing why the support is so strong.
So let's all make sure our legislators know all the reasons that you support the project and why they need to keep fighting for it. Sec. Rahn's said that he's a transportation guy, not a highway guy and that the state isn't contemplating different routes or modes -- maybe the winds are shifting in our favor. However, no decisions are finalized yet and we need to keep making the case that the project is a great value at the cost. We've only gotten this funding state because time and again, commited supporters and partners have kept the pressure is so high. On the evening of March 9, please join us when your schedule allows for however long you can.
