Nancy King's commitment to Montgomery County schools began when her own children attended our local schools, and deepened when she became president of the PTA and the Montgomery County Board of Education.
Nancy fights for progressive education reform while protecting Montgomery County's schools. As a member of the Budget & Taxation committee, she blocked a $23.4 million cut to our educational system, and brought home over $100 million for school construction and renovation projects. She stood up to leaders in her own party when they tried to push pension costs back to local government, saving the County $70 million annually.
In addition to fighting for Montgomery County's fair share, Nancy supports new and innovative ideas in education. She helped pass laws to make sure teachers have professional development and mentorship programs. She authored legislation to create a K-12 digital library to provide on-line resources to students in the classroom. And she is leading the way in creating a path to universal pre-kindergarten in Maryland.
