The Montgomery County government, recognized as among the most progressive and effective in the nation, can be even better. In an increasingly diverse County of nearly one million people, identifying and understanding the cultural diversity of its residents in order to build an open, inviting, responsive, and accountable government for all is an essential challenge. The Leggett Administration is committed to executive leadership that builds a responsive government through new patterns of collaboration, participation, partnership, and governance that focus on setting goals, identifying service gaps and areas of needed improvement, establishing priorities, tracking progress,and responding promptly to the needs of residents, community organizations, and businesses.
