Congressman Trone Convenes Call with Business Leaders in Maryland Amid Coronavirus Concerns

March 26th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

U.S. Congressman David Trone (MD-06) convened a call with business leaders in Maryland’s 6th District and representatives from the Maryland Department of Commerce to learn more about the impact of COVID-19 on businesses throughout the state.


Participants included business leaders and members of the Chambers of Commerce from all five counties in the 6th District, including Garrett, Allegany, Washington, Frederick, and Montgomery Counties. It also included representatives from the county workforce and economic development divisions. On the call, participants discussed how COVID-19 is affecting the business community and the steps that need to be taken in the future to coordinate as a community in order to support both workers and small businesses.


“Small businesses are being hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak, and we must make sure we are listening to the concerns of the community and providing the appropriate relief,” said Congressman David Trone. “As Congress continues to pass legislation, I’m working to make sure we prioritize workers and small businesses.”


“I feel the Allegany County business community has had a voice in finding solutions to the impacts of COVID-19,” said Stuart C. Czapski, Executive Director of Allegany County Chamber of Commerce. “Our federal partners have been very proactive with their outreach and communication.  They are asking questions and listening to the needs of the community then sharing specific information as legislation moves through the House and Senate.  It is greatly appreciated.”
