WHO:             Comptroller Peter Franchot

                        State and local elected officials



WHAT:          As the first stop on his Shop Maryland for the Holidays tour of the Mid-Shore, Comptroller Franchot will recognize Nagel Farm Service as a successful and growing family-run business. The statewide tour during the holiday season encourages Marylanders to shop locally to keep taxpayer dollars in residents’ communities and supports Maryland’s critical retail sector.


The Comptroller also will browse Easton’s News Center in the Talbottown Shopping Center, visit the shopping center’s Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer – which recently has returned after a more than 30-year hiatus -- and present a proclamation to the owners of Brasserie Brightwell for their resilience in re-opening following a September fire. Wrapping up his visit to the Mid-shore, the Comptroller will travel to Cambridge and spend some time touring/shopping at A Few of My Favorite Things, Sur Jeudi, Joie de Vivre Gallery and Simmons Center Market. So far this holiday shopping season, the Comptroller has visited La Plata, Cumberland, Laurel and Annapolis. He will wind up his tour Friday, December 13, in Mt. Washington.
