The Trachtenberg Office Attends the Up-County Latino Network Monthly Meeting

The Trachtenberg office was represented by Naomi Bloch at the Wednesday, May 26th meeting of the Up-County Latino Network, a bi-monthly meeting that takes place at the Bohrer Park Activity Center – 506 South Frederick Avenue, Gaithersburg, Maryland.

A presentation was made to the group by Officer Diane Tillery and Internal Affairs to alert the community members to ongoing scams that take advantage of residents seeking to become citizens. Officer Tillery wanted to urge everyone to reach out to their various community members to alert them to this serious and ongoing fraud.

The upcoming Hispanic Heritage Month Planning was also discussed and everyone was invited to help contribute their ideas and suggestions in order to help make this year’s celebration the best ever. The Hispanic Heritage Month takes place from September 13 to October 13th.

There were several other updates and announcements made by those in attendance and very good networking and exchange of information took place. There will be no meeting in July.
