It’s been a crazy year, filled with terrific accomplishments and disappointing losses. 2018 is shaping up to be another roller coaster, but we are optimistic that it will peak next November when Democrats reclaim a majority in the House of Representatives and take back the Governorship on Maryland.
Let’s get together to raise a glass and share some food and friendship with fellow DTMG members and friends.

A job should lift families out of poverty, not keep them in it.
The Montgomery County Council is scheduled on November to vote on County Bill 28-17 to raise the minimum wage incrementally to $15 per hour incrementally as of July 1, 2020 for most businesses. (exempted small, tax-exempt home-based service providers would have until July 1, 2022 to comply.) A bill was passed 5-4 in the last session but was vetoed by County Executive Leggett. Six Council Members must vote for the revised bill in order to override a veto, if County Executive Leggett again refuses to sign. This current bill is sponsored by Council Member Marc Elrich. Co-sponsors include Tom Hucker, George Leventhal, Nancy Navarro, and Hans Reimer.
Please Take This Action:
Contact the County Executive and the following Council Members who have not yet taken a position on the bill (especially if you are in their District). Tell them you are with DoTheMostGood and that you want the County Executive or the Councilmember to support Bill 28-17 with the 2020 implementation time frame and with the definition of “small business” as 25 or fewer employees (not 50 or fewer).
