larry-hogan-md-govBETHESDA – Governor-Elect Larry Hogan called for bipartisan cooperation to fix the state’s deficit and improve economic development in front of county elected officials and community organizations at the Committee For Montgomery’s 25th Annual Legislative Breakfast on Dec. 12.

“I realize that Montgomery County is one of the three lonely counties that unfortunately voted the wrong way from the entire state,” he said to light laughter. “Seriously though, the problems that face us are great but so is our resolve to fix them and to succeed I’m going to need all of your help. It’s going to take all of us working together.”
