Town Hall Meeting for Faith Community

Following our tradition of regular town hall meetings, we will will hold a special meeting for leaders of the County’s faith community on Thursday, February 26, at the Council Office Building in Rockville. The meeting, in the Council’s Third Floor Hearing Room, will start at 8 p.m. A pre-meeting reception will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the building’s second-floor cafeteria.

The Council is working with the interfaith community and the Interfaith Community Liaison associated with the County’s Office of Community Partnerships in organizing the meeting, which is open to the public. It is estimated that there are more than 3,000 faith community leaders representing many different religions throughout the County.

Faith leaders who wish to attend the meeting are asked to RSVP by calling 240-777-7931. The meeting will be broadcast live on County Cable Montgomery and rebroadcast at various times in the weeks following the meeting. Susan Kenedy, a producer for the County station, will moderate the meeting.

The meeting will provide the participants with an opportunity to let Councilmembers know how they feel about specific issues and also will provide the opportunity to ask questions of the Councilmembers in an organized, but informal, setting.
