ELKTON, MD. – With a relaxed ambience and a welcoming crowd, County Executive Alan McCarthy held his first question-and-answer forum yesterday evening at the Elkton Municipal Building, 100 Railroad Avenue, Elkton. The event was held just prior to the Town of Elkton Mayor & Commissioners’ meeting.

The County Executive fielded questions on the recently released FY2020 budget, the ongoing opioid issues occurring in our country, economic growth, in both Elkton and Cecil County as a whole, the County’s involvement in re-establishing the Elkton Amtrak train station, and the town’s persistent flooding issues.

Reflecting on the rich history in the County, citizens also encouraged a historical celebration in the coming years.AN EVENING WITH THE CO EXE 0219

“I feel like going out into the individual towns to meet with the community is important for me to learn more about your needs and your opinions,” explained McCarthy. “I understand that it is not always possible for the public to come to our meetings, so I want to make myself available as much as I can to the citizens of Cecil County.”

“An Evening with the County Executive” sessions are scheduled in each of the remaining municipalities through August. The forums are open to the public and you do not have to be a resident of the respective town in order to participate. The next Q&A session will be held on April 16th at 5:30 PM at the Perryville Town Hall.
