Leggett Sworn in for Third Term on December 1; Inaugural Speech Links Transportation Improvements to County’s Economic Health

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett was sworn in for his third term on Monday, December 1 at Richard Montgomery High School. Leggett announced a six-point economic plan to take advantage of the County’s already formidable strengths and better position it for the future.

One of Leggett’s recommendations is to create an independent transit authority for Montgomery County to move transit projects forward.

“The authority would focus attention and resources on our growing transit needs as we compete for jobs, talents and investments,” said Leggett. “A state-of-the art transit network is essential to unlocking our County’s economic potential and linking our economic centers of excellence throughout the County.”
