Comp­trol­ler seek­ing nom­i­na­tions for Wil­liam Don­ald Schae­fer Award

Dorchester Star - - NEWS -

AN­NAPO­LIS — Comp­trol­ler Peter Fran­chot has an­nounced his of­fice is ac­cept­ing nom­i­na­tions for the Wil­liam Don­ald Schae­fer Help­ing Peo­ple Award. The dead­line for sub­mit­ting nom­i­na­tions is Mon­day, Oct. 1. Comp­trol­ler Fran­chot will present the award to each re­cip­i­ent, be­gin­ning later this year.

Estab­lished in 2012, the award honors the un­par­al­leled le­gacy of pub­lic ser­vice left by for­mer Mayor, Gov­er­nor and Comp­trol­ler Schae­fer and is pre­sented in each of Mar yland’s 23 coun­ties and Bal­ti­more City to in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions with an un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to help­ing peo­ple.

“Ev­ery day, Mary­lan­ders across the state sac­ri­fice their own time to aid at-risk pop­u­la­tions or to bet­ter their com­mu­ni­ties,” said Fran­chot. “They don’t seek recog­ni­tion, but it is the least we can do to honor their self­less con­tri­bu­tions. For me, hand­ing out these awards and hear­ing about their achieve­ments is one of the high­lights of my year.”

Award re­cip­i­ents will be se­lected on their demon­stra­tion of:

• Im­prov­ing the com­mu­nity;

• Promptly re­spond­ing to a cit­i­zen prob­lem through ef­fec­tive gov­ern­ment in­ter­ven­tion;

• Di­rectly aid­ing our most vul­ner­a­ble pop­u­la­tions; or,

• Es­tab­lish­ing a pub­lic/pri­vate part­ner­ship to im­prove the lives of fel­low Mary­lan­ders.

Nom­i­na­tions sub­mit­ted in pre­vi­ous years but not se­lected should be re­sent. Nom­i­na­tion forms can be found on the comp­trol­ler’s web­site. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 410260-7300.
