VIDEO: Leggett's Political Future

Despite pressure to reconsider, Montgomery's two-term county exec has not reversed his decision to step down in 2014.


Last year, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett went on the record saying that he would not seek a third term in office.

In this fifth excerpt from a recent interview with Patch editors, Leggett (D) acknowledges that he has been “under a lot of pressure from people asking me to reconsider," but says he hasn't wavered from on his decision not to run, "as of yet."
