Statement from Governor Larry Hogan on Amazon HQ2

Decision to Locate in Northern Virginia ‘Tremendous Win’ for Region

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today issued the following statement following Amazon’s announcement that locations in Northern Virginia and New York have been selected for headquarters facilities:

“Amazon’s decision to locate one of its new headquarters facilities in Northern Virginia is a tremendous win for the entire Capital region. Collectively, we will not only gain 25,000 corporate-level jobs, but also many businesses that are part of Amazon’s supply chain. I want to thank County Executive Ike Leggett and all of our partners in Montgomery County for working with us to put forth a strong proposal that highlighted the outstanding advantages of doing business in Maryland. I look forward to working closely with Governor Northam and Mayor Bowser to welcome Amazon and meet the opportunities that lie ahead.”
