The purpose of A Case for Change in Montgomery County: A Summary of Trends and Data is to frame a conversation around the questions "Do these trends and data, and the conclusions that can be drawn from them, indicate there is a critical need for change in Montgomery County? Will continuing the status quo in collaboration and governance provide for the communities and citizens of Montgomery County a future which is prosperous, equitable, and sustainable?" Without a conviction of a critical need for change by leaders and citizens of the County, it is not possible to have reasonable and civil conversations about a shared vision of how the communities of the county might collaborate in new ways to create a future which is prosperous, equitable, and sustainable.
