ABOUT THE COALITION

We are a group of organizations that formed Montgomery County Neighbors Against Ballot Question B.

WHO WE ARE.

We are a coalition of neighbors and friends, concerned parents and voters. We come from religious organizations, labor, and local non-profits. We are united by the belief that our County belongs to all of us, that we make decisions democratically, that our schools and essential services are vital, and that our fiscal future is non-negotiable. Do you agree? Join us.

Will is one of the co-founders of the State of Black Montgomery, a community forum founded in 2014 focused on addressing issues that impact Black Montgomery County residents and he is the former Legislative Director and Chief Counsel for Congressman Jamie Raskin. He lives with his wife and daughter in Clarksburg. 

Jill Ortman-Fouse

Ms. Ortman-Fouse completed her four-year term as an at-large member

of the Board of Education (BOE) in December, 2018, and serves as senior

policy advisor to Councilmember Tom Hucker. Since her first child

entered the Montgomery County Public School system almost twenty

years ago, she has been a strong advocate for increased support of public

schools and equitable opportunities for all Montgomery County residents,

especially the most vulnerable. 

 

During her four years on the Board, Ms. Ortman-Fouse was a member of

the Montgomery County Collaboration Council’s Disproportionate Minority

Contact Reduction Committee, a work group formed to address the school

to prison pipeline; Montgomery County’s Children Fleeing Violence from

Central America work group, and the Montgomery College/University of Shady Grove/MCPS Achieving Collegiate Excellence & Success (ACES) steering committee for the recruitment and support of underserved, first-generation college students. Currently, she serves on the Montgomery County Strategic Alignment for Mental Health work group. As the number of students impacted by bias and discrimination, poverty and mental health challenges has increased in MCPS, Ms. Ortman-Fouse has sought greater cooperation between agencies to foster student success and wellness. 

 

Prior to her election to the Board, Ms. Ortman-Fouse served Montgomery County schools for the previous decade in a variety of roles, including PTA president, delegate for the Montgomery County Council of Parent-Teacher Associations (MCCPTA), and member of the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) Parent Advisory Council. 

 

She enjoys endurance sports and has completed ten marathons and an ironman distance triathlon. She and her husband have two MCPS graduates who now attend UMBC and UMD-CP.
