“The Mayor’s Emerging Leaders Program allows our youth the opportunity to get an impression of how County Government works. I’m sure some of the students will develop an interest in serving in government and I hope that all of them will take what they’ve learned and help others understand the processes involved in County Government decision-making. The youth will be the ones running or supporting County Government in the future, so we want to help familiarize them with it now through this program,” said Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett.

Students who are interested in the program will be asked to select their first and second choices for committees and all students are encouraged to attend budget committee meetings. Committee choices include: Airport Authority, Animal Care and Control, Emergency Medical Services, Parks and Recreation, Jail and Juvenile, School Liaison, Audit, Fire Protection and E-911.
