ALAN McCARTHY for COUNTY EXEC

*THANK YOU, Cecil County, for your support in the recent primary election. I hope to have your support in the November general election.

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

* Cecil County has lost too many jobs, without creating new employment opportunities. I will work hard to bring the jobs home, create new local work opportunities and job training for our youth.

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