The media strategy allows for targeted placement based on audience demographic data and includes videos appearing on Comcast cable, streaming, and digital platforms.  The campaign will be active through the end of July 2022.

“As workforce needs are shifting, we want to raise the profile of St Mary’s County among those living in the region,” stated Chris Kaselemis, Director of St Mary’s County Economic Development Department.  “St Mary’s has the advantage of great jobs and a great quality of life all within easy reach,” continued Kaselemis.

The Economic Development Department will manage and refine the campaign over the next four months and make the campaign components available to area employers to assist in their workforce recruitment efforts.
