The Chestertown Waterfront Coalition received word from professional advisors in Annapolis yesterday that the Town’s request for the Marina is in the mix for funding but might be among those that could be “on the bubble.”
Community leaders have been told that those interested in seeing the Town get funding for the Marina should call or directly write to Governor Hogan as soon as possible to let him know that they support the project by December 9.
As a result, the Chestertown Waterfront Coalition is making a big final push with residents to contact the Governor’s office two ways:
1. 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. 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.
2. 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 as well.
The Governor is expected to make a decision near the end of the month.
