ALAN McCARTHY for COUNTY EXEC

*With your support, we will move Cecil County forward, with job creation, education, and preserving our quality of life

* Cecil County lost 192 jobs at C&S Foods— moved to Prince George’s Co. because our Economic Development office fell down on the job. PG used state aid and a special county loan/grant fund to take our jobs. This job loss had nothing to do with ‘illegal immigrants.’

*My administration will save jobs— with casino 'impact aid' money directed to create a local fund to keep jobs here.
