Forum Nov. 17 to explore Baltimore-D.C. mutuality


October 31, 1998

Hoping to further dialogue on regionalism, The Baltimore Sun Co. will sponsor a community forum Nov. 17 focusing on the shared interests of the Baltimore and Washington regions.

"Baltimore-Washington Regional Cooperation: Opportunities and Obstacles" will include discussion of the region's bid for the 2012 Olympic Games and the area's economic development potential.

The Baltimore Sun is presenting the forum as part of a larger effort to further conversation on topics of importance.

Speakers will be Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke; Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan; Kenneth Sparks, executive vice president of the Federal City Council; and Ioanna Morfessis, president and chief executive officer of the Greater Baltimore Alliance.

"With today's competitive challenges confronting the businesses and governments of both the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., regions, it is in our collective best interest to continually find mutually beneficial ways to work together," Morfessis said.

The free forum will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St.
