This fall more than 400 people wrote to Maryland Governor Hogan on behalf of the Town of Chestertown’s $1.5 million funding request to support the rehabilitation of the Town’s waterfront and municipal marina. These letters made a huge impact.
Right now the Town’s request is under consideration by the Governor’s office along with hundreds of others. The decision to fund the project will likely be made in the next 10 days.
Chestertown’s advisors in Annapolis are confident that the Town’s request is being considered seriously but also tell us that capital funding is exceedingly competitive. Success is far from assured.
The days ahead are our last opportunity to advocate on behalf of the Town’s request for funding to restore Chestertown’s waterfront. Your voice will be critical to the effort’s success.
There are two ways you can make a difference if you act TODAY:
- Call the Governor’s office at 410-974-3901 or 1-800-811-8336 and let the Governor know you support funding for Chestertown’s Waterfront. Don’t be scared to do this. An assistant will answer the phone and all you need to do is tell them your name and that you are calling in support of the Town of Chestertown’s Capital Budget Request for the Marina. Be nice!
- Send a letter of support (or a copy of your previous letter of support) directly to the Governor’s office at: Governor Larry Hogan, 100 State Circle, Annapolis, MD 21401 Its important the Governor knows you letter comes from a real person. Handwriting your envelope and signature helps!
To have an impact your call must be made (or your letter received) by December 9. We kid you not – it’s do or die time and your support could be critical. Thank you!
