Join us for Shabbat service with guest speaker Councilmember Andrew Friedsonto hear about his leading Montgomery County’s economic recovery, affordable housing, Green Buildings, and general county updates.

Andrew was elected in 2018 as the youngest council member in Montgomery County history. Serving on the Planning, Housing, & Economic Development and Government Operations & Fiscal Policy Committees, he has become known as “the economic and fiscal center of the Montgomery County Council.”

As the Council’s Lead for Parks, he promotes open space and has become a widely respected advocate for walkable communities. His commitment to enhancing the quality of life and growing our economy, and his data-driven approach have delivered results during one of the most challenging periods in County history. 

Andrew has also been tackling affordable housing and climate crises. He established a $100 million Housing Opportunity Fund to increase the affordable housing supply, co-authored legislation to bring more transit-oriented housing to Metro stations and has led efforts to increase options to provide affordable housing for seniors. He co-authored the largest climate investment in Montgomery County history, the Green Buildings Now Act, and a first-of-its-kind Green Building Tax Credit program that incentivizes reductions in carbon emissions.
