Most notably, Abe is the newest member of the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board. This group of Silver Spring and Takoma Park residents meets regularly to discuss issues important to the community, like transportation, economic development, housing, youth activities and the environment. The board then provides recommendations and advice on these issues to the County Executive and County Council.
What makes the board so incredibly important (and unique) is the fact that Silver Spring is unincorporated. That means we don't have a mayor or a city council. The Citizens Advisory Board is it, and the members work incredibly hard to make sure residents of our community have a voice.
You can find a list of all board members here. If you see any of them, be sure to thank them for everything they do to keep Silver Spring and Takoma Park happy, beautiful places to live!
