Maryland Governor Larry Hogan faced plenty of challenges when he took office. His predecessor, Democrat presidential candidate Martin O’Malley, left him with plenty of messes to clean up, including a lagging private sector and a number of arcane and unpopular taxes. To make matters much worse, in June 2015 Governor Hogan announced his diagnosis with an aggressive form of lymph node cancer.
Fortunately, today the governor’s cancer is in remission and the Maryland economy is on a much brighter path. And while the governor deserves significant credit for his accomplishments, the Maryland victory is shared equally by the job creators who want to make the Old Line State a viable place in which to work and live.
