In Dist. 4, Ryan is most qualified

I have known Patrick Ryan, a Democratic candidate for the District 4 County Council seat, for many years and have observed his community interests as he co-chaired Action in Montgomery, which advocates for social justice for the citizens of the county.

He has represented those unable to speak up for themselves: homeless veterans, teachers and firefighters (unable to afford to live in our county), seniors without access to transportation and students affected by population growth.

Pat is interested in reducing overcrowding in schools, finding ways to finance more workforce housing, lowering unfair property tax increases and developing additional mass and public transit, so needed by seniors.

Of all the announced candidates, Pat has the most experience in writing and enacting lawmaking. His record indicates that he is the most qualified to serve our county.
