(Annapolis, Md. – July 26, 2019) This afternoon, Governor Larry Hogan will be elected chairman of the National Governors Association at the NGA 2019 summer meeting in Salt Lake City. He will succeed Montana Governor Steve Bullock, under whom he served as vice chairman.
Gov. Hogan’s chairman initiative, “Infrastructure: Foundation for Success,” aims to tackle challenges to U.S. infrastructure. Our economy relies on improvements to and modernization of our infrastructure across the board. It goes beyond roads, bridges and railways and extends to reliable and available internet for connectivity not only between regions in Maryland, but across the U.S. Enhanced infrastructure will increase our competitiveness and ultimately make Maryland a better place for business.
“The Maryland Chamber is thrilled for Governor Hogan to be chairman of the National Governors Association. We are excited for Maryland to be represented on the national stage and look forward to advocating for stronger infrastructure in our state and nationwide alongside him,” says Maryland Chamber President & CEO Christine Ross.
This appointment will make Gov. Hogan the first from Maryland to be at the helm since Parris Glendening in 2000.
