Election Day November 2, 2004 we shared a vision about what we could do after Jan 20, 2005. The vision remains even if our schedule changed. Now, reaching out and working together is more important than ever. How can we make Montgomery County, Maryland, and the USA better? MCPA is answering that question. Ongoing efforts need volunteers.
