Delegate Maggie McIntosh, Baltimore City Delegate and Chairman of the House Environmental Matters Committee, will be visiting Hagerstown on Tuesday, May 13 to tour several businesses in the city and meet with City and County Officials to discuss economic development. Chairman McIntosh is visiting Hagerstown on the invitation of Washington County Delegation and specifically Delegate LeRoy Myers, Delegate Andy Serafini, Delegate Neil Parrot, Senator Shank and Delegate John Donoghue.
“Earlier this year, Chairman McIntosh sponsored several bills to stimulate economic development in Baltimore City”, said Delegate Andy Serafini. “During these bill hearings, we realized that our cities share some of the same challenges. Delegate McIntosh was gracious enough to accept our invitation to visit Hagerstown and we look forward to these discussions.”
“The redevelopment of Hagerstown has to be real a priority”, said Delegate LeRoy Myers. “Many of the problems in our city start right there; jobs, the loss of population, abandoned properties – all of those things could be mitigated if we moved forward with a sound economic development plan. This is where we have to start, and it needs to happen now. Our citizens have waited long enough.”
