From: Maryland Governor Wes Moore​

Annapolis, MD - Governor Wes Moore released the following statement on the successful recovery mission conducted by Unified Command:

“Maryland continues to pray for the families and loved ones affected by this tragedy. They have our thoughts, our hearts, and our support.

We hope that everyone will respect the request of the family for privacy during this difficult time.

As we continue to recover those who have perished, may we never forget them, their loved ones, and the commitment they made to work in a profession that bettered the lives of so many Marylanders across the state.

On the day of the collapse, I said that we would do everything in our power to support these families. And we will continue to work every day to bring them closure with dignity. But more than that, we must continue to offer them comfort, help, and healing in their hour of need.”
