Dems deride Hogan’s pledge

By Luke Broadwater, The Baltimore Sun Article

Governor withholds money for Baltimore despite his support for bipartisanship

A month ago, Maryland’s Republican Gov. Larry Hogan announced that he was forming a national organization aimed at promoting bipartisanship. “An America United” would encourage the idea of Democrats and Republicans “working together,” he said.

But last week, Hogan announced that he was refusing to release funding for more than 70 of Maryland Democrats’ favored initiatives in the state budget — including more than a dozen that would have benefited deep-blue Baltimore. He called the lawmakers “reckless” for trying to spend $245 million to provide summer jobs for city youths, bolster the struggling Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, build new schools across the state and give raises to correctional officers, among other proposals.

In return, Democrats accused the governor of being a disingenuous hypocrite.

In Maryland, things clearly weren’t so bipartisan.

Advances Solar Energy Projects on State Properties, Establishes Task Force for Development and Siting

ANNAPOLIS, MD—Continuing his commitment to skilled environmental stewardship, Governor Larry Hogan today announced new initiatives to promote clean and renewable energy projects in Maryland.

Clean and Renewable Energy Initiatives. Governor Hogan signed Executive Order 01.01.2019.09, establishing the Governor’s Task Force on Renewable Energy Development and Siting, which will work to develop consensus-based recommendations on the siting of new solar and wind energy projects in the state. To jumpstart that process, the governor announced new initiatives aimed at advancing solar energy deployment and development on state-managed and -owned properties:

  • The Maryland Department of General Services, along with the Maryland Environmental Service, will conduct a first-of-its-kind assessment and inventory of state properties that could be utilized for solar energy.

  • The state is pledging an additional $4 million in grants to aid large public institutions, including community colleges and universities, to deploy solar arrays on existing infrastructure—such as parking lots and rooftops—while encouraging state agencies to incorporate solar energy into any future construction.

Statement from Governor Hogan on Supreme Court Gerrymandering Decision

Press Release, June 27

ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on Benisek v. Lamone:

“Today’s ruling was terribly disappointing to all who believe in fair elections. I pledge to vigorously continue this fight, both in Maryland and across our nation. Gerrymandering is wrong, and both parties are guilty. It stifles real political debate, contributes to our bitter partisan polarization, and deprives citizens of meaningful choices. The voters should pick their representatives, not the other way around. I will do everything in my power to restore free and fair elections for the people.

“The Supreme Court agrees that this is a matter for states and legislatures to address. Next year, I will again introduce redistricting reform legislation in Maryland to put the drawing of districts in the hands of a balanced, fair, and nonpartisan commission—instead of partisan politicians. This is a problem we can, should, and must solve. It is, and will continue to be, one of my highest priorities as governor.”

I am Republican because…

 

I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person's dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.

I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.

I BELIEVE  free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity. 

I BELIEVE  government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn. 

I BELIEVE  the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which governs least. 

I BELIEVE  the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people. 

I BELIEVE  Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times. 

I BELIEVE  Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world. 

FINALLLY, I believe  the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
