HAGERSTOWN, Md. - Before heading to the Maryland General Assembly, the Washington County Chamber of Commerce held a public forum for people to connect with the state delegation.
During the forum, the Washington County business community voiced their opinions on what they wanted to see done in the upcoming year.
Many people had questions about the Interstate-81 expansion project and paid sick leave bill for small business owners.
Since the Hub City makes up a small percent of Maryland, state leaders are eager to connect local concerns on a larger scale.
“Flight of business is what is important to our community of citizens. It is a good message for us to hear and make sure we convey it back to our fellow elected officials,” said Maryland Senator Andrew Serafini, (R) District 2.
The Maryland General Assembly will convene in Annapolis on Jan. 10.
