Change is possible

On Wednesday, Councilmember Roger Berliner said, “As difficult as it is, change is possible; culture can shift; values can be realigned.  But to do so requires perseverance, grassroots organizing, coalition building, outreach, and even an occasional press strategy – basically, something that every elected official here understands – a real campaign.  In Montgomery County, our efforts to remake a part of our community that has been known as White Flint, and recently renamed the Pike District, is a classic study of all that is necessary to overcome community fears and transportation bureaucracy resistance.”

I like that we’re a ‘classic study’, don’t you? I’m happy that we’re the poster child for making the theoretical real. I’m glad that all of us, working together, are proving that change is possible.
