@Piotr Gajewski: Could—or should—the second issue you raise in your last paragraph be addressed by the charter review commission (that of the timing of city elections)? Please see Councilman Moore's blog post in which he previews a resolution on the commission that he plans to offer on Monday: http://patch.com/B-LX0 I'd love to know your thoughts—or the thoughts of anyone else who wants to weigh in below the councilman's post.

Sean, Yes, absolutely. And I am in agreement with Council member Moore’s approach. I would be pleasantly surprised if it carried the day.

I see no harm in reminding people, who have short memories.

Piotr, Your analysis of the election process in Rockville is most likely correct. I was born and raised here, been here all my life and I do know that alot of "old time" Rockville folks don't want any development. Personally the only one I thought was a bad idea from your list is the Silverwood Project, also I'm not too keen on Twinbrook Station and of course Walmart on the pike. All the others I think would be assets to the city. I think if we are to see any "real" change in the election you are going to have to get younger voters to participate more who might be more open to some development in the area. How to achieve that..........who knows? Maybe set up a voting booth at Gordon Biersch :)) on Friday and Saturday nights!! Until then...........the "old" guard of Rockville will rule the roost!

Mr. Moore's resolution is good! He will make a fine Mayor someday soon......
