Silverman still silent about IG audit

Montgomery County Councilman Steve Silverman is still silent, nearly a week after the Inspector General's scathing report about the Seven Locks School scandal.

Silverman was a major force behind the attempt to tear down the elementary school and replace it with high-density "workforce" housing, while attacking the Seven Locks community as racists and bigots for opposing his plan.

A leading contender to replace Doug Duncan as county executive, Silverman has issued no public statement on the audit, sending a signal that there is more official wrongdoing for the IG to uncover.

Silverman has said nothing to the press, and his official campaign website has not been updated since February 12.
