ANNAPOLIS, MD — Governor Wes Moore and cabinet members today continued the governor’s statewide cabinet meeting road tour in Caroline County, strengthening the Moore-Miller Administration’s commitment to making Maryland safer, more affordable, more competitive, and the state that serves. The governor and cabinet members visited various locations, including the University of Maryland Shore Regional Pavilion, Caroline County Sheriff's Office, Martin’s House and Barn, and Twin Maples Farm.

"In the Moore-Miller Administration, we meet the people where they are. Today, we sat down with Marylanders on the Eastern Shore to talk about how we move in partnership to advance our shared goals," said Gov. Moore. "Caroline County is a case study in how Maryland can lead across sectors -- from agriculture, to nonprofits, to public safety. And by working together, we will continue to leave no one behind."

On the second stop of the tour, the governor visited the Martin’s House and Barn mission, a residential facility that provides shelter and food for Caroline County residents and others in need. For nearly 40 years, the non-profit organization has been a safety net for individuals and families needing special support during difficult times in their lives.
