“Our Office of Management and Budget provides exceptional financial management because of its leadership and employees who ensure efficiency and effectiveness for our taxpayers,” said County Commission President Debbie Lieberman.  “We are confident that this tradition of excellence will continue under John’s leadership.”

For the past 34 consecutive years, Montgomery County’s Office of Management and Budget has received the “GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award” from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).  In order to receive this award, a governmental unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, an operations guide, a financial plan and a communications device.
