Councilmember Nancy Navarro Reaffirms Support for Saving Sligo Golf Course

Today, Councilmember Nancy Navarro reaffirmed her support for keeping Sligo Creek Golf Course open to the diverse residents of Montgomery County. Though the County continues to explore ways to permanently fund operations and maintenance of the course, on Tuesday, September 29th, the County Council will vote on whether to approve enough funds to keep the course operating for another year.

In keeping with her past position on this issue, Councilmember Navarro has pledged to vote "YES" for Councilmember Ervin's proposal to fund Sligo Golf for another year. In the meantime, the County and community members will be working hard to devise a plan to permanently keep the course solvent.

Nancy Navarro Meets Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor

This week, Montgomery County Councilmember Nancy Navarro had the honor of attending a Baltimore Orioles game with newly appointed United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

As luck would have it, the Justice was attending the game to make good on a promise made by Senator Ben Cardin, during her confirmation hearings. The Baltimore Sun blog noted:

"Back in July, at a Senate confirmation hearing for Sonia Sotomayor, Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland invited the judge to be his guest at an Orioles game."


"Last night, Cardin made good on the offer to Sotomayor, who became the first Latina Supreme Court justice to sit in a skybox at Camden Yards (the Maryland Stadium Authority's box, for those keeping score at home)."

This comes on the heels of President Barack Obama's address on health care at the University of Maryland, College Park. Councilmember Navarro and her colleague Councilmember Valerie Ervin had the opportunity to attend this rally on one of the most important issues of our time. This was an exciting week, indeed!
