Denis: 'Kendale is behind us now'

The County Council member who has proposed a graceful way out of the Kendale school scandal says Montgomery County should move on.

"It appears to me that Kendale is behind us now. We look to the future. My CIP amendment is still on the table,” Councilman Howard Denis says in the Almanac. Denis has proposed scrapping the politically damaged - and possibly illegal - Kendale project in favor of modernizing and expanding Seven Locks Elementary School on its current site.

Says Denis, "With Kendale off the table we have to focus on how best to rebuild on-site, which is clearly the only viable option that’s left.”
