    Hi. Somehow someone signed me up for the Montgomery Co text message alerts. I live in Harford County and never signed up. Can you please let me know how to stop them? I've tried texting "stop" and "quit" but they won't work. Thank you.

    1. Oh, no! We certainly don't want to send you any texts you don't need! Please send your phone number to me at susanne.wiggins@montgomerycountymd.gov, so we can unsubscribe you.
