Gov. Wes Moore marks first visit to Eastern Shore since inauguration


EASTON, Md. – Maryland Governor Wes Moore making his first visit to the Eastern Shore since he was inaugurated Tuesday. He stopped at Rise Up Coffee Roasters in Easton, and spoke about his overall plans for the next four years.

Some of the top issues: bolstering public safety and small businesses, and making education more equitable. Other items on the agenda include supporting watermen, and fighting climate change.

“Those are not issues that people want on one side of the bridge. People want that all over the state of Maryland,” said Gov. Moore. “That’s in addition to the fact that people here on the Eastern shore are going to have a champion in Annapolis.”

Gov. Moore says the visit wasn’t just about talking, though. It was also about listening. “We need to make sure we’re bringing resources back over to this side of the bridge to make sure those things can become real,” he said.

The Governor tells 47ABC WMDT that his favorite thing about the Eastern Shore is its diversity; just one reason why Gov. Moore says he plans to keep the priorities of the Eastern Shore balanced with the rest of the state.

“They say that Maryland is America in miniature. In many ways, the Eastern Shore is Maryland in miniature. So, this is one of my favorite places in the entire state of Maryland.”
