The Avenue News - - EDITORIAL -

Comptroller Peter Fran­chot an­nounced this week that his of­fice is ac­cept­ing nom­i­na­tions for a new award rec­og­niz­ing busi­nesses that cel­e­brate the guid­ing val­ues of in­de­pen­dence, in­no­va­tion and in­vest­ment that de­fine Mary­land’s lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity.

The “Cor­ner­stone Award for Lo­cal Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence” will cel­e­brate busi­nesses that strengthen Mary­land’s econ­omy, gen­er­ate jobs and tax rev­enue, de­velop new ideas that more ef­fec­tively de­liver ser­vices and prod­ucts within the mar­ket­place and lead by ex­am­ple in their lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“Mar yland has many in­no­va­tive and di­verse busi­nesses that step up, pave the way for­ward and as­sume the risk to change and im­prove how we ex­pe­ri­ence the world and go about our daily lives,” Comptroller Fran­chot said. “This award will rec­og­nize these lead­ers in all of our com­mu­ni­ties, large and small, for their con­tri­bu­tions to Mary­land’s econ­omy.”

Nom­i­na­tions will be ac­cepted through De­cem­ber 31. One busi­ness will be se­lected from each of Mary­land’s 23 coun­ties and Bal­ti­more City. Awards will be pre­sented from Jan­uary through the end of June. Busi­nesses of any sec­tor and any size are el­i­gi­ble for the award.

The nom­i­na­tion form can be found at mary­land­ and should de­tail how the busi­ness is trans­form­ing their in­dus­try and/or im­pact­ing the world around them through their in­de­pen­dence, in­no­va­tion or in­vest­ment and what fu­ture op­por­tu­ni­ties may fol­low.
