Elrich Marks First 100 Days in Office as County Executive

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich is focused on his vision for a more equitable and inclusive Montgomery County as he marks his first 100 days in office this week.

“My first 100 days as county executive have flown by,” said Elrich. “We have worked to assemble our new administration’s team; met with residents and businesses leaders around the County to discuss their priorities; worked with the County Council; and traveled to Annapolis to meet with State lawmakers during the legislative session; all while preparing an operating budget that reflects our seven priority areas: Thriving Youth and Families; A Growing Economy; A Greener County; Easier Commutes; A More Affordable and Welcoming County; Safe Neighborhoods and Effective and Sustainable Government.” 

On this 100th day in office, Elrich will join with Council President Nancy Navarro and other County leaders to launch the community conversations around racial equity and social justice. He will also travel to Annapolis to testify before the House Ways and Means Committee in support of increased funding for schools.

Some of the accomplishments of the first 100 days of the Elrich Administration include:

According to Elrich, the next 100 days will include, among other initiatives, closely working with the environmental community to ensure that the County is taking all possible steps to address climate change; launching a new business hub in the Upcounty Regional Services Center to assist new and existing businesses and reinvigorating the County’s direct involvement in economic development by reexamining regulations to make sure they are efficient, fair and sensible. 

“I believe the best policies are both data-driven and compassionate, and that County Government must be transparent and accountable to residents,” said Elrich.
