Friends of MCHS: Nancy Dacek [insert Photo of ND with one or more animals to accompany article] Nancy Dacek served on the Montgomery County Council from 1990 until 2002, with responsibility for budget and animal control issues.  She was instrumental in transitioning the county's Animal Services Division (date) from a stand-alone department to a division of the MoCo Police Department.   This move has helped MCHS be more efficient at doing its job by making it easier to communicate with both groups.
Dacek proposed this change to the County Council and it passed for several reasons:  As part of the police force, ASD would have more legal authority to enforce the Animal Control Laws, and as a unified team, ASD and the police could deal more effectively with animal control and rescue.  So far the realignment has been a win-win situation for both.
Raising public awareness of MCHS While serving on the MoCo Council, Dacek raised public awareness of the unique importance and value the Humane Society has played in the lives of its citizens through some key legislation.  In 1998(?) she collaborated with the HS and some interested individual citizens to revise some of the Animal Control Laws.  Among the revisions she worked on were whether a dog could be chained in a backyard; providing water and shelter for all dogs; and issues related to spaying and neutering.
Dacek served on the Public Safety Committee during her tenure with the Montgomery County Council.  She dealt with animal control issues that came before the committee.  Her advocacy led to an increase in the number of officers in the Animal Services Division, and purchase of new, better equipped animal control vans for the division.  She also succeeded in getting a much-needed salary increase for Humane Society employees. A new shelter = Today's greatest need MCHS desperately needs a new housing facility, Dacek said.  "The building is more than 30 years old and, because of its advanced age, is very run-down and in poor physical condition.   While on the Council she worked tirelessly to achieve this goal, but unfortunately, funding was not appropriated.  (Note: The county has since developed plans to build a new shelter.) In a July 2001 news release Dacek was quoted, "The Humane Society does great work for Montgomery County.  This agreement (the contract under which MCHS, a private nonprofit, operates the animal shelter for the county) makes sure MCHS can keep on doing great work.  Council staff, the Police, and the County Executive were enormously helpful in making sure we drafted a fair deal for all.  Montgomery residents - and Montgomery animals - are the big winners."  By the way, Nancy is a proud beagle owner.

Black Box Voting - Entries from September 2006, 1 Sept 2006 [cached]
"This [still] is the scrupulous Montgomery," says Nancy Dacek, the besieged president of the elections board, facing the clamoring horde across the election office counter.
"It wasn't a screw-up," she also says.
Dacek, 72, was a 12-year County Council member representing the northern, more rural part of Montgomery who lost her seat in 2002. Gov. Robert Ehrlich appointed her to the elections board in 2003.
"There are apparently 110 things that have to be put in the bags to be taken to each polling place," Dacek says, her "I Voted" sticker clinging desperately to her white jacket. "It was a simple staff mistake."" When you have a system that can break this easily, you have a bad system. When you have a system that requires the perfect deployment in 1700+ locations of 110 items by poorly trained volunteers, you have a system that WILL fail. Andrea LaRue, a lawyer volunteering on behalf of U.S. Senate candidate Ben Cardin, steps up to the counter with a question for Dacek.
Dacek replies.

Thank You to Nancy Dacek Nancy Dacek has been a member of the Montgomery County Council who always found time to talk to us and support Town interests. She was a friend of the Brookeville Academy when we needed all the help we could get for construction funding. Nancy was there for us to ensure that the Bordly Drive extension to Georgia Avenue, a logical and master-planned transportation project that should do much to divert east-west traffic from Town, was not sidetracked by very vocal opposition. Nancy was also, of course, a strong supporter of the Brookeville Bypass. Our heartfelt and sincere thanks go to Council member Nancy Dacek and her always accessible and helpful staff. She will be a tough act to follow.
