This July, I had the opportunity to enjoy all Maryland has to offer, from celebrating Independence Day at parades across the state to trying delicious, locally grown food at our annual Buy Local Cookout and attending the Tawes Crab & Clam Bake in Crisfield.
I was also elected chairman of the National Governors Association, the boldly bipartisan voice of the nation’s governors. During my first address as chairman, I announced my yearlong initiative that will improve the nation’s aging infrastructure by developing common sense solutions with the help of leaders from academia, government, and the private sector. Thanks to your support, I was also honored to once again be ranked among the nation’s most popular governors.
“Over the next year, the nation’s governors have an opportunity to prove that there is a better way to govern. In the states, there are leaders who are willing to work together, across party lines, to take on the big problems.”

This month, Governor Hogan announced that he will once again deliver toll relief for our citizens by putting another $28 million back into the pockets of hardworking Marylanders—totaling an historic $344 million in savings.
Follow along with our announcements next month on our website and find event photos here!
July 20-28 was Maryland’s official Buy Local Week! The governor and first lady celebrated by preparing and enjoying locally produced foods at the annual Buy Local Cookout. You can find the amazing recipes here.
During his travels through Western Maryland this month, Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford made a stop at Casselman River Bridge State Park, which, at just around four acres, is the smallest state park in Maryland! At the time the bridge was built, it was the largest stone arch in the country. #RutherFacts#LGStateParkBucketList
