Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett stood on East Montgomery Avenue in the heart of Rockville Town Center on Tuesday with the holiday shopping season on his mind.
“I want to make sure everyone gets an opportunity to go out and shop in Montgomery County,” Leggett said at the close of a news conference to launch the county’s “Shop With a Cop” public safety initiative.
“I’d add a little bit to the ‘Shop With a Cop,’” Leggett said. “I want you to shop ‘til you drop with a cop—in Montgomery County.”
Today is Black Friday. If you’re looking to follow the county executive's advice and shop local this holiday season, be sure to check out Patch’s “Montgomery County Holiday Shopping Guide.”
