As reported previously, Montgomery County, MD will not use the name of the professional football team in official county communication and the county council will be considering a resolution urging the owner to change the name. We need other counties and elected bodies to do the same! Rebrand Washington Football continued its advocacy and sent letters to Prince George's County and Arlington County. Prince George's could be a hard sell because Fed Ex Field is located there. Yet, we will not be cowered and wrote the county asking them to do the right thing. More than one week later, Rebrand Washington Football has not heard from a single county councilmember or board member from either of the two counties. We need this situation to change and that is why it is important that constituents write letters asking for a change of the name. You can find the contact information of members of Prince George's county here: http://www.princegeorgescountymd.gov/sites/countycouncil/Pages/default.aspx and Arlington County here: http://countyboard.arlingtonva.us/county-board-members/. A copy of our letter is here:
Josh Silver is one of the founders of RWF and is a life time fan that wants the name changed!
