Frederick County leaders will play leading roles at the 2016 Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) Summer Conference that will be held August 17-20 at the Roland Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, Md.
County Executive Jan Gardner, who was president of MACo in 2007, will moderate a panel on “Data-Driven Justice: Using Data to Lead to Better Outcomes in Criminal Justice,” and speak at a session titled, “To Boldly Go . . . Toward Better Modern Schools,” providing an update on the 21st Century School Facilities Commission. Additionally, Dr. Barbara Brookmyer, Health Department, will co-lead a session titled, “Learn to Save a Life – Naloxone Training for Opioid Overdoses.” Director Jack Markey, Emergency Management Division, will speak on “9-1-1: The Next Generation – Everything Will Change, Except the Numbers.”
“Frederick County will be well represented at the conference and we look forward to sharing our expertise with other county officials,” said Executive Gardner. “I look forward to speaking on school construction issues and the need for the state to maintain its commitment to public education while counties develop options and incentives to more effectively leverage our share of state dollars.”
