Mark Elrich’s June 2011 newsletter outlines a number of topics. Rapid Transit caught my eye, as the county looks at a very long term (finished 2040!) plan to add dedicated bus lines through the county. I suppose by the time its finished we won’t be able to afford gas or will have retired out of the county, but the details can be found in the newsletter. The information on the amount of money the county has given Wheaton Plaza was also interesting, given the budget pressures at hand.
While Mark is an at-large councilperson and not directly representing our neighborhood, I find his newsletters to be well written, informative, and filled with important information about the council activities.
