Chamber Hosts UpCounty Breakfast Briefing



Thirteen years ago, the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce established the UpCounty Business Breakfast Briefing which affords Chamber members and UpCounty Business Leaders an opportunity to discuss legislative issues with their elected officials.

On Tuesday, Oct. 2, the GGCC had Montgomery County Executive Isiah “Ike” Leggett; and State Senators Cheryl Kagan, District 17; and Brian Feldman, District 15, as guest speakers at its 13th Annual UCBBB.

“It’s so important for businesses to work closely with our legislators. We are fortunate to have a great relationship with our County Executive and our State Senators,” said Marilyn Balcombe, GGCC President/CEO

The event was sponsored and hosted by Hughes Network Systems, LLC - An EchoStar Company and held at their location in Germantown.

Transportation, the election, and healthcare were the forefront of conversations held.


Montgomery County Executive Isiah “Ike” Leggett delivered his final thoughts after 12 years of leading Montgomery County. Leggett said that we can either “go big or go home” and he chooses to “go big”. He noted that this County is diversified with people from all over the world and we’re growing.
