I just moved to Silver Spring, Maryland. Silver Spring is way bigger in size and population than the town in Vermont I moved from, but Silver Spring doesn’t have a local government. All of the unincorporated and incorporated “towns” in Montgomery County are all governed at the county level.
It seems to be working. The roads are in good shape and downtown Silver Spring seems to be recovering from decades of neglect and decay.
Where I live, I’m precinct 13058 and congressional district 8 and legislative district 18.
Maryland’s fearless leaders in the US House include 1 Republican and 7 Democrats. In district 8, I’m represented by Democrat Christopher Van Hollen, Jr.
In the US Senate, Maryland has chosen democrats Benjamin L. Cardin and Barbara A. Mikulski.
In the state legislature House of Delegates, district 18 has three democrats: Alfred C. Carr, Jr., Ana Sol Gutierrez, and Jeffrey D. Waldstreicher. Democrat Richard S. Madaleno, Jr. represents district 18 in the state Senate.
