Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot will visit Poolesville on Friday morning prior to the Town’s Holiday Celebration with the lighting of the Christmas Tree Friday night.
In the morning, Franchot will take part in a roundtable discussion with town leaders to discuss the local economy, ongoing projects and future goals. During the meeting, the Comptroller will present a proclamation to Jim Brown, President of the Poolesville Town Commission, recognizing the municipality for its significant contributions to the state and its environmental leadership in Montgomery County.

Franchot is scheduled to stop by Zaglio’s Bakery, Total Diesel and Automotive, Mooey’s Frozen Yogurt, Dollar General, The Blue Hearth and MainSpring Inc.
