Gov. Hogan tours Salisbury’s Chesapeake Shipbuilding


Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Monday visited Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury. Led by Charles A. Robertson, President and CEO of the company, the governor and local elected officials toured a cruise ship projected to be completed in August.

Chesapeake Shipbuilding has filed a Notice of Intent to participate in the Hogan administration’s More Jobs for Marylanders program, which incentivizes manufacturers to create jobs in the areas of the state that need them the most. Wicomico County was recently elevated to a Tier I County thanks to the administration’s initiative to expand the program during the 2018 legislative session.
