Guest Speaker:  Mark Gerhardstein, Montgomery County Superintendent MCBDDS (Montgomery County  Board of Developmental Disabilities Services) spoke about how critical your vote is in keeping human services available to the tens of thousands of residents who depend on these critical services. This levy must pass to protect and help the most vulnerable citizens in our community. Replacement levy cost $1.30 more a month ($100,000.00) property). The cost of not dealing with the issue is even greater. The Risk if the levy fails is millions in state and federal dollars that would be lost. This levy collects $61 million a year, almost half of all local funding for health and human services. The Humans Levy Supports State Mandated Agencies:  Childrens Services, Developmental Disabilities Services, Public Health Services, and Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services.
