New Voice of TAME: George Leventhal, Montgomery County Councilmember At-Large

George Leventhal is a man of conviction.  He has a vision for the economic sustainability of Montgomery County and the well-being of its citizens.  Currently a leader of the County Council in environmental matters, Leventhal was awarded the Maryland Climate Hero Award by the Chesapeake Climate Action Network in 2009.  His commitment to the environment includes advocating transportation alternatives to the automobile.

In a statement made to the TAME Coalition and Action Committee for Transit in December, Leventhal promised: "I will not support funding one more dollar towards building Mid-County Highway Extended. Montgomery County should be focusing their transportation dollars on building transit to accommodate our growing economy and population. We are now in the business of moving people, not cars, to their destination." 

With great respect, TAME Coalition welcomes the support of Councilmember George Leventhal in its mission to restore balance to the County's transportation system: supporting rapid transit, accelerating road improvements and transit projects, and eliminating M-83 from the Master Plan of Highways.
