Franchot to meet Dorchester faith leaders

CAMBRIDGE — Peter Franchot, comptroller of the State of Maryland, in June this year, met with a group of local clergy to begin a discussion about issues facing Dorchester County and ways that the state can work with local faith leaders, state and local government, and other agencies to address those concerns.

The Dorchester Faith Alliance, an alliance of local clergy and laity, working with Dave Wooten, from the comptroller’s office, have asked that Peter Franchot again invite the faith leaders of Dorchester County to gather for further conversation, and he has agreed to meet with the group on Oct. 30.

The alliance hopes to center its conversation around three questions:

• What is the critical issue facing this community that the faith communities can impact by their faithful discipling actions?
• Can we find enough common ground as those faith communities to work together?

• How can we work with state and local government and other agencies and institutions to make a real and positive difference in Cambridge and Dorchester County?

The meeting will be held Oct. 30 at 10:30 in the upstairs room of Jimmy & Sooks, 527 Poplar St, Cambridge.

This gathering is open to all laity and clergy of Dorchester County faith communities and representatives of local government and other agencies.
