Leventhal is firm: 'Council will not support Kendale'

County Council President George Leventhal is adamant that his legislative body, which controls the purse strings of MCPS, will neither support construction of the Kendale school nor the closure of Seven Locks.

"Given the total lack of community support for Kendale and the full range of problems with the Kendale site, the council will not support a Kendale solution," Leventhal says in the Washington Post.

He adds, "I believe there are also not sufficient votes on the council to approve the closure of Seven Locks Elementary School and the dispersal of all its students to other schools."
