Purple Line NOW! is hosting an exciting event, a Transportation Forum with Maryland's Gubernatorial Candidates on Tuesday, December 10 at the Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring campus. We have confirmation from Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, Delegate Jolene Ivey speaking on behalf of Attorney General Doug Gansler, Delegate Ron George, Charles Lollar, and Delegate Heather Mizeur.
We hope you will attend this educational and informative event! Tickets are free, but space is limited so you must reserve your seat(s) in advance.
If you are not a sponsor, but would like to attend the event, you must reserve your seat in advance by completing this easy Ticket Form. We expect a large audience for the Forum from the community - transit enthusiasts, Labor groups, students and Purple Line supporters and we will be promoting the event heavily through media outlets, through mailings and by reaching out to community groups, civic organizations and other interested parties, so DO reserve your seat today.
The Forum begins at 7:00 pm and should last about an hour. The Forum will be broadcast on Montgomery College's local cable station and archived on the Montgomery College website, so we ask that all attendees arrive by 6:45 pm so that you can be in your seats at 7:00 pm.
(If you are a sponsor of the event, the evening will begin at 6:00 pm with a private one hour reception with donors, sponsors and gubernatorial candidates. It is not too late to sponsor this event and you may do so by completing our Sponsorship Form.)
Purple Line NOW! has played an effective and important role in many of the issues that have brought the project to this point including the passage of last spring's transportation bill, Governor O'Malley's $400M commitment from the state for construction, promoting the project for full federal funding and working with Montgomery County to make sure the hiker-biker trail is fully integrated into the project as planned. We are closer than we have ever been in our history and now, more than ever before, we need your help to finish strong.
