ROCKVILLE – Politicians and non-elected citizen leaders agree: if you want to win on public policy and political issues, it helps to be well-organized.
For the West End Citizens Associations, organization is one of the hallmarks for the group consisting of local residents in the historic part of the city between Interstate 270 and the Town Center property.
The group could declare at least partial victories last month on two public policy issues that consumed the city politics for months: Chestnut Lodge and the school bus depot.
Carver Coalition Vice President Eric Fulton described WECA’s members as “very organized” and “very passionate.”
“If I have learned anything as a member of the Carver Coalition since February, it's a group of organized, well-informed, active and loud citizens can accomplish quite a bit,” he said.
