Caring for our Citizens
For many years Frederick County has partnered with human service non-profits and service organizations to help meet the needs of our citizens. This has been a valuable partnership and a cost effective way to meet community needs. Mark believes that how a community takes care of their neediest and most vulnerable people is a reflection of the true character of our community.
Having worked in a non-profit setting, Mark understands that government can be a viable partner with private, charitable, and human service organizations. Government partnership and consistent funding provides stability to these programs and sends a message that the community as a whole cares about the well-being of all citizens.
Mark believes that the legacy of taking care of our elderly at Montevue Home and Citizens Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has been a worthwhile and compassionate legacy and should continue. It is a mistake to sell these facilities, especially at a substantial loss.
