County Comment/Citizen Of The Month Honored

by Norman Bassett
Washington County Public Information Officer

In the regularly scheduled Board of County Commissioners meeting on March 2nd, Commissioner John Munson read into the record a proclamation honoring Frank Murray of Hagerstown as Citizen of the Month. Munson cited Murray, who served the City of Hagerstown and Washington County for more than 20 years as a volunteer Emergency Services Technician with Community Rescue Service, and served 10 years as CRS Chief. Murray made a great impact on the community by saving countless lives, lived with the challenges that Multiple Sclerosis imposes, yet continued to serve the citizens of his community.

Murray put the safety and well being of his community ahead of his family and himself and set an example for all citizens of Washington County through his courage and his dedication to Public Safety, Munson said. The proclamation was presented to Murray at his home later in the day. Munson’s father, Gerald “Dutch” Munson, was a founding member of CRS.
