Wicomico Executive Rick Pollitt Says "The Worst Is Behind Us"

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO Co., Md. - Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt says "the worst is behind us."

While he can't yet speak of "economic recovery," he says Wicomico is on track to once again become the Hub of Delmarva.

In Thursday morning's state of the county address, Pollitt spoke about business initiatives that were accomplished this year, including a reduction in personal property taxes.

He hopes to continue efforts with the county's Visioning Action Committee to establish goals in the education system, transportation and economic development.

"We've been taking the time during this recession where economic activity is at an all time low, to really do a self analysis of who we are and what we can be --looking at the resources we can bring to bare going forward, trying to build a new community under what I've been calling a new normal," he said.

Going into 2014, he hopes to maintain a strong credibility in managing public dollars well and would also like to see Bennett Middle School continue on track to open in 2015.
