CLINTON, Md. (October 6, 2011) – TOMORROW, Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown will give keynote remarks at the Seniors and Veterans Services Summit, organized by Councilman Mel Franklin, at the Colony South Hotel & Conference Center. Several state and local agencies will be in attendance providing important information to seniors and veterans in district nine.
Lt. Governor Brown, a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves and the nation’s highest-ranking elected official to have served a tour of duty in Iraq, leads the O’Malley-Brown Administration’s efforts to provide veterans with better services and resources. Since taking office in 2007, Lt. Governor Brown championed successful efforts to pass the Veterans Behavioral Health Act, protect veterans business loans programs and fully fund the Iraq and Afghanistan Scholarship Program. Earlier this year, the Lt. Governor launched the Mil2FedsJobs web portal, located on the Maryland Workforce Exchange (MWEjobs.maryland.gov), the first of its kind in any state to directly match transitioning service members with careers in the Federal Government.
