Purple Line Now Candidates Forum
Purple Line NOW! is hosting a Transportation Forum with Maryland’s gubernatorial Candidates Tuesday, Feb. 18 at the Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring campus. Candidates who declared or filed their intentions by the end of January 2014 were invited to participate in the event. At this time, Attorney General Doug Gansler, Delegate Ron George, Mr. Charles Lollar and Delegate Heather Mizeur have confirmed. Candidates will share their position on the current transportation situation in Maryland, their vision for the future, and what they, as governor, would do to help that vision become a reality.
The event is free to the public but space is limited and all seats must be reserved in advance by visiting the Purple Line NOW! website. Because Montgomery College Television is taping the program, all attendees are asked to arrive a few minutes early so that the hourlong program can begin on time at 7 p.m.
Although this event is being organized by Purple Line NOW!, the forum will be conducted in a neutral manner with introductions of each candidate done by Montgomery College Vice President and Provost, Dr. Brad Stewart. Neither Purple Line NOW! nor Montgomery College support or oppose any political party or candidate. A large audience made up of transit enthusiasts, labor groups, students, elected officials as well as the greater community is expected.
