“I am so proud to be a Marylander,” the President told a standing room only audience, praising the bipartisan efforts of Franchot and the elected officials from both parties present. She also lauded the work of the Comptroller’s staff, including Chief of Staff Len Foxwell, an SU alumnus. The Maryland office has been recognized nationally for the quality and speed of its service to taxpayers.
The call center brings 25 new jobs to the region.
Franchot, who was born in Connecticut, is fond of referring to SU as the “Yale University of Maryland” when addressing campus audiences, a goal the SU President smilingly referred to as “aspirational.”
Salisbury Mayor Jake Day said, “I don’t think it’s a bad thing to be aspirational,” as he spoke about the City’s goals for downtown redevelopment. The Mayor praised the teamwork of the Comptroller and also the President’s transformation of the campus Route 13 skyline, something he’d like done for downtown.
