In case you missed it…Both Gubernatorial candidates touting the importance of strengthening Maryland’s business competitiveness!

For the past two years, the Maryland Chamber and our partners have been talking about the importance of strengthening Maryland’s competitiveness with other states on business issues, and that work has been paying off.  Both of the major Gubernatorial candidates have made multiple statements about the importance of making Maryland more business friendly and highlighting their commitment to make Maryland more competitive with our surrounding states.  Here are just a few of the things that the Candidates have said:

• “Brown argued that he and Hogan share common ground on cutting taxes and improving the state’s business climate,” – Washington Post, Oct. 7, 2014

• “The lieutenant governor vowed to pass targeted tax cuts that would go to the smaller companies that he said create two of every three jobs in the state.

         “It starts with small entrepreneurial businesses,” Brown said.

          Hogan suggested that while the Democrat has been promising to improve Maryland’s business climate, the pledge is belated. “Why haven’t you done anything about it for the past eight years,” Hogan asked.” – Baltimore Sun, Oct. 7, 2014

• “There will be no new taxes,” Brown said….Brown said he would direct tax credits at small businesses to help the middle class….Hogan said he wants to roll back as many tax increases as he can.” – Frederick News Post, Oct. 8, 2014
