While Governor Larry Hogan would have you believe he is a staunch advocate for every man, such a myth couldn’t be anything further from the truth. As his national Republican Party leader, Donald Trump, wreaks havoc on states such as Maryland – Hogan has stood idly by trying to act as though he doesn’t exist. When did this kind of behavior become mistaken for leadership? Maryland deserves better.Read more
Governor Larry Hogan is taking another swipe at Maryland’s students. A couple week ago, Governor Hogan presented his operating budget for the next fiscal year of 2019. The governor said that none of his proposed cuts were serious and claimed that the budget will still fund the state’s priorities. However, Hogan has shown his priorities and they are not in the best interest of Maryland’s public school students. In fact, Maryland’s public schools have been underfunded by nearly $3 billion since Hogan took office, and this budget will only help continue that.Read more
When talking about school infrastructure, the reality of the implications of not funding our school hit home over the past few weeks in Baltimore City Public Schools. Thousands of teachers, students, and parents were left scratching their heads as schools were closed day after day because classrooms were uninhabitable due to frigid temperatures. It is 2018 and this should not be an issue for children trying to learn.Read more
Governor Hogan recently rolled out a video on social media touting his long string of supposed wins and efforts to help the people of Maryland. In this video, Gov. Hogan appears to be spreading some fake news of his own like his Republican comrade Donald Trump. With some simple fact-checking and research the fake news Hogan has been peddling since he was elected is just plain false and incorrect. Here are just a few of the more egregious claims that Hogan made in his self-congratulatory video.Read more
Congress just adjourned for the year.
They gave corporations and the ultra-rich one hell of a Christmas gift when they passed a major tax cut which screws the middle class and drives our nation deeper into debt.
They left pregnant women and poor kids with a lump of coal when they failed to act on the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
CHIP covers 9 million people across the nation. When Congress failed to act, they left 150,000 Marylanders at risk of losing their healthcare.
Governor Larry Hogan said he wants to protect Marylanders from the nonsense in Washington. He needs to put his money where his mouth is.
Add your name to the growing list of Marylanders who are calling on Larry Hogan to protect working families by fully funding Maryland’s Children’s Health Insurance Program.
Maryland's common sense gun law drives the National Rifle Association and their allies nuts.
They fought our law in court – and lost. Now they are gearing up to fight our law in the legislature.
Governor Larry Hogan’s allies Wayne Norman and Kathy Szeliga took aim at our gun law this week with a proposal to put more guns in churches. The kicker? The Harford County Sheriff's Office acknowledges their idea is utterly unnecessary because anyone with a concealed carry permit can already carry in church.
It’s a thinly veiled attempt to undermine our common sense gun law. It's political pandering at its worst, and it’s no surprise it’s coming from lawmakers who are bought and sold by the gun lobby.
The NRA gave Norman and Szeliga an A rating in 2014. Larry Hogan and the NRA supported Szeliga in her disastrous campaign for US Senate in 2016.
Add your name to the growing list of Marylanders who support our common sense gun law – and who will fight against any effort by Larry Hogan’s allies to undermine the law.
Earlier this month, Governor Larry Hogan “unveiled” several not-so-new initiatives geared towards combating violent crime in Baltimore. Instead of offering new solutions, Hogan spent his press conference criticizing the crime-fighting proposals of Baltimore City mayor, Catherine Pugh, arguing that it put too much emphasis on providing services to young people as a means for deterring criminal activity long-term instead of addressing the current crisis.Read more
On November 28th, Governor Hogan decided, with much pomp and circumstance, that he would finally re-engage in the sick leave debate – long after a majority of the Maryland General Assembly had already committed to overriding the Governor's veto when they return in January. While the work was being done during the last legislative session, Hogan wanted no part of the conversation and had nothing to offer to the many voices doing the difficult job of crafting meaningful legislation that would change lives. Leadership elevates the discourse, but Hogan clearly missed the memo. He couldn’t even show up.Read more
The state of Maryland is facing a severe shortage in government employees. According to legislative analysts, the executive branch must fill 1,200 vacancies and create an additional 1,200 new positions in order to perform essential functions. The Department of Legislative Services, a nonpartisan department that advises lawmakers of both parties, has informed the General Assembly’s Spending Affordability Committee that the elimination of over 7,700 positions by both Democratic and Republican gubernatorial administrations since 2002 has left the state seriously understaffed.Read more
While Marylanders celebrate the season and holiday cheer spreads across the state, Governor Hogan, with his recently released earned sick days legislation, has placed a lump of coal in all of our stockings.Read more
