Gaithersburg Mayor Jud Ashman and members of the City Council will host the annual State of the City Address at the Rosborough Cultural Arts & Wellness Center on the grounds of Asbury Methodist Village. In addition to the Mayor’s annual address, the event also includes the presentation of awards for the Distinguished Citizen, Outstanding Organization and Distinguished Friend of Gaithersburg, and serves as the final official event for Junior Mayor Zayd Salahuddin. The incoming Junior Mayor will be introduced as well.

Janet Neumann, a longtime volunteer with Gaithersburg HELP, will be presented with the 2019 Distinguished Citizen Award. The Outstanding Organization Award is being presented to the Kentlands Community Foundation in recognition of its contributions to the broader community. The Distinguished Friend Award will be presented to Mary Canapary, who has been involved with the Lord’s Table Soup Kitchen for the past 35 years.

The full program will be videotaped and available for viewing a few days after the event on Gaithersburg TV, available on Comcast and RCN channel 13 and FiOS channel 25 within the City limits. The program will also be available on the City’s YouTube channel @GburgMD.

Invited guests include civic partners who serve on City boards, commissions and committees, community leaders, county and state representatives, and others whose involvement is invaluable to our community.
