ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 7, 2017—Montgomery County Councilmember George Leventhal, who chairs the Council’s Health and Human Services Committee and serves on the Planning, Housing and Economic Development Committee, is the featured guest on the Sept. 8 broadcast of En Sintonía con el Concejo del Conado de Montgomery (Tuned in with the Montgomery County Council), a weekly show on Radio America (WACA 1540AM).  This pre-recorded show originally aired on Aug. 25.  

Councilmember Leventhal is joined by Marla Bilonick, Executive Director of the Latino Economic Development Center, and Daniel Parra, Director of Small and Minority Business Development for the Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation.  The group discusses economic development in the County and the resources available for those who want to become entrepreneurs.

The Montgomery County Council and Radio America have entered a partnership that provides the Latino community with key information on issues and programs. The partnership also provides a forum for residents to express views and ask questions. The partnership includes the weekly one- hour show each Friday on the Washington metropolitan area’s most popular Spanish language station. Lilian Mass is the show’s host.

Each week, the show features guests talking about important issues before the Council and provides information about programs offered by the County to help residents.
