In the fall of 2013, I emailed County Executive Leggett and the Montgomercy County Council asking them to pass a resolution urging Mr. Snyder to change the name of the team. The District of Columbia had just passed a resolution. Mr. Leggett responded by saying that Montgomery County will no longer use the name in official county communication. I received a response from Councilmember Levanthal saying that such as resolution would be "only hortatory and would be perceived by many as grandstanding." He and Councilmember Berliner said that the Council also did not have time. This week, in a Washington Post article (http://wapo.st/1LHlgBt), Leggett stated that he may introduce a resolution to the council this spring. Leggett has so far kicked a field goal (no use of name) but he must score a touchdown by introducing a resolution. If Berliner and Levanthal don't have time, I don't have time to vote for them in the next election. This is about the dignity of human beings, and passing such a resolution should be a no brainer and not take too much time. Take a moral stand, Montgomery County, and tell your resident, Mr. Snyder, that he must change the name!
Josh Silver is one of the founders of RWF and is a life time fan that wants the name changed!
