Hogan Joins Franchot in Shop Local Push

December 8th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

Governor-elect Larry Hogan joined Comptroller Peter Franchot for his annual "Shop Local" events on the Eastern Shore, including stops in Easton and Cambridge. The Governor-elect and Comptroller visited several local shops in both towns to promote supporting local small businesses during the holiday season.

"It's been great to be on the Shore today and I have especially enjoyed meeting so many people during my stops with Comptroller Franchot," Governor-elect Hogan said. "It's so important that Marylanders patronize their local small businesses during this year's holiday season and beyond. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and we need to do everything we can to support one another as we work to make Maryland a better place to do business again."

The Governor-elect and Comptroller visited over a dozen local businesses during their two stops, including Sailor, Shearer the Jeweler, Maya Bella Pizza Company, Dragon Fly, Chef and Shower, and Irish Traditions in Easton, as well as A Few of My Favorite Things, Sunnyside Shop, Realerevival Brewing, Brewmaster, Katie Mae's Country Shoppe, Liv Again, and Simmons Center Market in Cambridge.

Governor-elect Hogan's time with Franchot was part of a full day of events scheduled on the Shore today. This morning, the governor-elect addressed a crowd of over 700 farmers and agricultural advocates at the 99th annual Maryland Farm Bureau Convention in Ocean City. In addition, Governor-elect Hogan met with Jim Perdue and other Perdue senior executives at the company's headquarters in Salisbury, and will make an official Thank You Tour stop in Grasonville this evening at Annie's Paramount Steak and Seafood House, located at 500 Kent Narrow Way North.
