At budget forum, an offer to help - Gazette

Rockville man argues in favor of volunteer contributions in tough fiscal year
by Jeremy Arias | Staff Writer

While community activist groups lobbied County Executive Isiah Leggett for funding at a Long Branch budget forum last week, a Rockville man took a different approach by asking what he could do to help in a tough budget year.

Dave Magill, a member of the Mid-Atlantic Off Road Enthusiasts, which volunteers to help maintain more than 20 biking trails in area parks, asked how county volunteers could help ensure steady staffing for county programs, many of which will be facing cutbacks with a $450 million deficit in the county budget this year.
