Meet Marie Parker, daytime custodian, Department of General Services’ Buildings and Grounds Division.

Calvert County Government via Facebook

Prince Frederick, MD- Marie has worked in her current position for 12 years. She is responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of the Calvert County circuit courthouse and assisting visitors as needed. She regularly lends a helping hand to those in need, answering questions or providing directions.

“It’s not the same thing every day,” Marie said. “You never know what’s going to pop up in the course of the day.”

Prior to working for the Department of General Services, Marie worked at the Calvert County Nursing Center as a supervisor and evening cook for 15 years.

Outside of work, Marie creates balloon columns and arches for parties and special occasions. She also enjoys spending time with family, putting together puzzles and playing games.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
