Charles County Department of Economic Development (Department): What is your favorite part about living in Charles County?

Department: What resources in Charles County have helped you to grow your business?
BD: I have worked directly with the Charles County Department of Economic Development and Peter Murphy, who is the President of the Commissioners. I’ve received great responses from both and felt a strong bond to the county government.
