State of the City Address Emphasizes Community Connections
Gaithersburg Mayor Sidney Katz and members of the City Council hosted the annual State of the City address on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at Asbury Methodist Village. More than 200 guests attended the reception and presentation, including civic partners who serve on City boards, commissions and committees, elected officials, community leaders, members of the media, and others whose involvement is invaluable to the Gaithersburg community.
In his annual address, Mayor Katz outlined accomplishments from the past year and spoke of challenges and opportunities facing Gaithersburg in the months and years to come. His full remarks are available online below.
The evening also included the screening of a new video, Gaithersburg: A Community Connected. Created by the City's Cable TV Division, the production brings to life the City's recent citizen survey, including testimonials from dozens of residents, business and community leaders on such topics as economic development, sustainability, public safety, community engagement, and much more.
The Mayor's address and the video are available for viewing on the right and on Gaithersburg's Cable TV channel, GTV. GTV can be found on Comcast and RCN channels 13 and FiOS channel 25 within the City limits.
