Richard Gottfried

Candidate for Council

As a longtime resident and proven Rockville community activist, Richard Gottfried, CPA is well acquainted with the issues of our city and is not a newcomer to Rockville City politics. At the core of his policies, you will find equitable civil policies that are grounded in the principles of inclusivity and involvement.

The wide disconnect between our senior population and the youth of the future needs to be bridged.

My dad taught me “to dream the impossible dream” from Man of La Mancha to be the best at whatever I decided to do, and if elected, I will serve this city to the best of my abilities.

For me, Rockville and the people who live here are family. And there is nothing as sacred and important as family.
