Rose Krasnow announces upcoming Community Conversations

Rockville, MD – Rose Krasnow, Democratic candidate for Montgomery County Executive, has announced a series of upcoming public events called Community Conversations.

The events, which are free, are listed on Krasnow’s campaign website at They will take place throughout Montgomery County beginning on April 18 and continuing through May, with additional dates to be announced.

“These Community Conversations are an opportunity for me to meet directly with the people I will represent as the next Montgomery County Executive,” Krasnow said. “It’s vitally important to hear their ideas and concerns and discuss opportunities and challenges, so that together we can find workable solutions.”

The campaign encourages the public to put politics aside and come join Krasnow for a “no-nonsense, unfiltered” conversation about Montgomery County's future.

“As an experienced, plain-spoken leader, Rose isn’t running to move up the political ladder. She’s running to get things done,” Krasnow campaign manager Ashley Rhinehart said. “Rose wants your voice to be heard.”
