And the City (sic) Council of Montgomery County, Maryland unanimously approved a $15 minimum wage.

This information is incorrect. Residents elect a nine-person County Council and an County Executive form the county's government. The county's boundaries contain several incorporated and unincorporated cities and towns whose boundaries can overlap electoral district borders. The County Council has been deliberating the minimum wage hike nearly two years, ostensibly fearing a veto by Leggett. The issue was not offered for vote by referendum. MoCo is one of the wealthiest counties in the USA with median HH income last reported ~$94K.

Similarly, the Council members of the city-state known as the District of Columbia has been deliberating the minimum wage hike nearly two years, ostensibly fearing a veto by the Mayor Muriel Bowser.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
