Statement by DR. CHARLENE R. NUNLEY, PRESIDENT, MONTGOMERY COLLEGE, On the Montgomery County Council’s Approval Of the FY 2007 County Operating Budget

"This budget reaffirms once again how wisely and consistently our County leaders – including County Executive Duncan and the County Council – demonstrate that they understand the overall quality of life in Montgomery County starts with the priority we place on providing the best education for our residents, from pre-school through college.

Thanks to this operating budget, we’ll be able to hold the line on tuition next year, so that our students will not be facing any increase in tuition or fees for the first time since 1984. We’ll also be able to add some faculty and staff to keep pace with growth and to support modernization and expansion efforts slated for our campuses, including the new buildings opening at our Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus.

We’re also appreciative of the Council’s strong support of our capital budget needs, giving us the opportunity to go forward on plans to construct a new Bioscience Education Center at the Germantown Campus and a new Science Center at Rockville, among other key projects.

On behalf of our Board of Trustees and our college community, I want to thank the Council for crafting a budget that places a high priority on educational excellence."
