Marylanders Speak to Governor Hogan

On Oct. 4, Cast Your Vote on What Marylanders Expect of Our Governor!

Since January, many Marylanders have been frustrated by Governor Hogan’s lack of leadership in publicly addressing and supporting efforts to mitigate the potential impacts on Maryland of proposed federal policies and budgetary initiatives. Six hundred concerned Marylanders signed a letter inviting the Governor to attend a forum in Montgomery County to address those potential impacts. The Governor was advised that the forum would be held even in his absence, yet he declined our invitation on more than one occasion, indicating he was unavailable any weeknight evening in fall or winter 2017.

These issues are simply too important for us to wait for our Governor to lead, so we have assembled a panel of policy experts to address how our state can respond to actions taken by the Trump Administration in three key areas that directly impact Marylanders. In keeping with the name of the forum, Marylanders Speak to Governor Hogan, audience members will have an opportunity to submit questions for the panel after registering and will be able to vote to prioritize specific policy actions within each of the three issue areas.

The Forum will be held October 4, 2017, 7:30pm-9:00 pm, at Richard Montgomery High School, Rockville, MD 20852. Doors open at 7:00 PM. RSVP below, and use the links below to spread the word!
