Montgomery County Could Protest Washington Redskins Name — County Executive Isiah Leggett said he is considering asking the County Council to pass a resolution urging the football team to change its name. Leggett was prompted by an email from Bethesda resident Joshua Silver. Councilmembers said they’re not sure they want to use Council time on the matter. The team’s owner, Dan Snyder, lives in Potomac. The D.C. Council passed a resolution earlier this month urging the team to change its “racist and derogatory name.” [Washington Post]
