|Robert Dyer for Montgomery County Council At-Large 2014|
|I am officially a 2014 candidate for the Montgomery County Council (At-Large).
Watch my official campaign announcement video using the link on the Main Menu at left. It will give more details on the campaign platform outlined below:
I am running on a bold, progressive agenda with the following 3 priorities:
* Purple Line
* Expanded MARC service
* More bicycle infrastructure
* Build the Rockville Freeway
* Build a new Potomac River crossing
* Build the M-83 Highway
2. AFFORDABLE HOUSING
a. 8 new revenue streams for affordable housing and transportation projects will be placed in 2 lockboxes. These dedicated funds will only be spent on construction of transportation and housing projects, or acquisition of existing affordable units.
b. New growth and development policies will incentivize construction of low-density, Levittown-style subdivisions. These will offer affordable, energy-efficient single-family homes, with lots sized to expand as families grow.
c. Protect existing affordable apartment complexes, and existing residential neighborhoods, from demolition and urbanization
a. Universal Pre-K for every child.
b. College education for every child.
c. Program that will link students from low-income areas to new, large firms that we will attract to the county. Some classrooms will be located right in the corporate headquarters, and these student internships and classes will give them an inside track to jobs with these firms after college.
