County Executive & County Council Candidates Share Their Views on the County’s Food System

In anticipation of the Montgomery County Executive and County Council primary elections this summer, the Montgomery County Food Council invited all candidates to respond to a brief questionnaire on the County’s food system. A link to the online questionnaire was distributed to all candidates via email in April of 2022. Below, you will find links to the unedited candidate responses that were submitted to the Food Council as of June 28th. Please visit this page regularly, as additional responses will be uploaded when they are received. Our goal is to provide information on the food system priorities and commitments. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we do not endorse candidates.
