An Historic Week in Annapolis

Wes Moore will be sworn in tomorrow as Maryland’s first Black governor.

When he takes the oath at noon on Wednesday, his hand will rest on a bible that once belonged to abolitionist and Marylander Frederick Douglass. Moore has pledged to build an administration that reflects the diversity of the state and promote policies that unlock economic opportunity for all. Moore is expected to provide more specifics this week as he rolls out his priorities to state lawmakers who began their legislative session last week.

Moore attended another history-making inauguration Monday when Brooke Lierman was sworn in as Maryland’s first woman comptroller. The Association attended and will continue to work with Lierman who previously served as a state delegate.

With one more day in office, Governor Larry Hogan is leaving on a high note. According to a Gonzales Poll released overnight, 77% of Maryland voters approve of the job Hogan has done as governor.
