Council Town Hall for Students
Montgomery County Council is inviting students to speak up and speak out at the Council’s Town Hall Meeting scheduled for October 10th. Two years ago, the County Council hosted its first Town Hall Meeting for Students to learn what issues most concern younger residents. On Wednesday, October 10, the third such meeting will be held in the Third Floor Hearing Room of the Council Office Building, 100 Maryland Ave. in Rockville. The meeting will start at 7 p.m., preceded at 6:30 p.m. by a reception in the building’s second-floor cafeteria.
The meeting will be broadcast live on County Cable Montgomery (CCM), cable Channel 6 on Comcast and RCN, Channel 30 on Verizon) and rebroadcast at various times in the weeks following the meeting. CCM Producer Susan Kenedy will moderate the meeting.
For the first time, the Council will use Twitter to bring more young people into the discussion. Some questions will be taken during the Town Hall Meeting using the hashtag #mocoyouth. Students tweeting about the event are encouraged to use the hashtag, as well.
Students who wish to attend the meeting are asked to RSVP by calling 240-777-7931.
