Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough responded on July 2 by sharing a video statement on the Governor’s proclamation on events and gatherings of 10 people or more in Montgomery County.
In the video statement, Judge Keough shared that, “events in excess of 10 persons shall continue as planned in Montgomery County so long as they are in compliance with Governor’s executive order and the CDC guidelines.” The judge held up the signed proclamation and wished residents a great 4th of July.
