Progress has many parents, and I want to especially thank County Executive Allan Kittleman, County Council Chair Mary Kay Sigaty, and the entire membership of the County Council – Calvin Ball, Greg Fox, Jen Terrasa, and Jon Weinstein – for their leadership, commitment and unwavering support of Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods.
