Regular readers will remember that I’m no great fan of County Executive Ike Leggett’s views on White Flint. He and I have had direct conversations on this. I disagree with his promotion of the County Dept. of Transportation’s automobile-centric approach over pedestrian safety and sustainability. I think he is LONG overdue (like, a year) in presenting a plan for financing White Flint’s needed infrastructure. I think he is endangering the entire Plan by reinforcing Montgomery County’s reputation for inconstancy — not being able (or willing) to keep its promises over the long term.

So it is with some amusement that I note that one of Leggett’s erstwhile challengers is criticizing him for his “push for urbanization of Montgomery County in places like White Flint”, as Douglas Rosenfeld, a Republican running in the upcoming Sept. 14 primary election, told the Gazette newspaper.
