Save the SMOB Voting Rights Bill!
Montgomery County’s youth have been fighting for years to expand the voting rights of the Student Member of the Montgomery County Board of Education (SMOB). This year, Delegates Anne Kaiser (D-Dist. 14) and Tom Hucker (D-Dist. 20) introduced House Bill 701 which would allow the SMOB to have a real voice on the Board of Education by granting voting rights on certain issues.
The bill passed the House by a 119-13 vote with the support of the entire Montgomery County Delegation. It is now in the Senate, but is being tied up procedurally by one senator -- Senator Brian Frosh (D-Dist. 16) of Montgomery County.
Please take a moment to send a message to Senator Frosh and your State Senator to let them know that this issue is important to Montgomery County’s youth.
