Worcester County recognizes Economic Development

September 6, 2016 – The Commissioners present a proclamation recognizing September 19-23, 2016 as Economic Development Week in Worcester County to highlight the impact that businesses starting up or expanding have on the local economy. Those pictured include Commissioners Chip Bertino and Jim Bunting (front row, from left), Vince Gisriel of Sprout Creatives, Economic Development Director Merry Mears, and Commissioners Diana Purnell and Merrill Lockfaw; and Commissioner Joe Mitrecic (second row, from left), Ann McGinnis Hillyer of OceanCity.com and ShoreCreftBeer.com, and Commissioner Ted Elder. Area residents benefit greatly from community-focused businesses, and young, emerging companies, like Sprout Creatives and Ocean City.com are exemplary. The presence of these types of trendsetters attracts additional startup businesses and spurs economic growth.
