Comptroller Peter Franchot


Comptroller Franchot will present the William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award for Baltimore County on Tuesday to Janet Kurland for her lifetime commitment to improving the lives of older adults through her work with Jewish Community Services. Mrs. Kurland is a founding director of the Edward A. Myerberg Center and is president emeritus of the Maryland Gerontological Association. She retired in November from her role at JCS after 42 years of aiding local residents.

The Comptroller will then head to Pariser's Bakery in Pikesville, where he will present a proclamation to owner Motti Margalit in recognition of its status as one of the area's oldest Kosher bakeries. Formerly located in the Druid Heights neighborhood of Baltimore City, Pariser's has been in continuous operation since 1889, specializing in homemade challah, danish, knish and bourekas.
