Denis: Seven Locks community was 'right all along'

"It turns out they were right all along," Montgomery County Councilmember Howard Denis (R-1) said about the Save Seven Locks School Coalition and the Seven Locks PTA members who exposed the official wrongdoing that led to the Inspector General report.

According to Almanac reporter Ken Millstone, "Denis endorsed the report's recommendations and said he felt 'misled and let down' without singling out individual culprits.

"It's an attitude problem with some people in government ... They just say, 'I know better,'" Denis said.

Denis would not state, when asked, if he was referring to the Montgomery County Public School (MCPS) leadership, but did volunteer that the IG report speaks for itself.
