CALLAWAY, Md. (May 8, 2010) -- Delegate Anthony O’Donnell (R-District 29C-Solomons), the Maryland House Minority Leader, is headed for Israel this coming week. He'll be joining Lt. Governor Brown and several other Maryland-based business and charitable organization leaders. The trip is sponsored by the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, headquartered in Owings Mills.

While on the mission, Lt. Governor Brown will visit several Israeli businesses considering opening offices in Maryland and participate in a professional exchange with Israeli professionals, according to a statement released Friday by Brown's office.

“I thank the Henry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation for the invitation to join this mission and I look forward to an open exchange of ideas with the Israeli men and women we will meet. I am confident that our mission will strengthen the partnerships we have forged with business and government leaders in Israel and will open our doors to new opportunities in the global marketplace,” Lt. Governor Brown said in the statement.

Brown’s office says his trip is sponsored in full by the Henry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and no state funds will be used. Del. O'Donnell's office is closed until May 24 "due to travel" and as such, was unable to obtain O'Donnell's agenda and source for travel funding for the trip.

According to their Web site, "The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation is dedicated to assisting the poor through operating and capital grants to direct service organizations primarily located in Maryland, Hawaii, Northeastern Pennsylvania, New York, Israel and the Former Soviet Union. These grants focus on meeting basic needs such as shelter, nutrition, health, socialization, and enhancing an individual’s ability to meet those needs. Within that focus, emphasis is placed on older adults and the Jewish community."
