Anthony Brown: Maryland's next governor

Anthony Brown: Maryland’s next governor


Anthony Brown is a man of multiple accomplishments. As Lieutenant Governor for the last seven years and a Delegate to the Maryland House for eight years preceding his rise to the Executive Branch he has become extremely familiar with the mechanisms of state government. Lieutenant Governor Brown concurrently continues to serve in the United States Army Reserves with the rank of Colonel for which he has been a member for three decades. As a Harvard trained lawyer he distinguished himself there and during his tenure in the private sector. Support for him to rise to the ultimate job in state government has been increasing at an exponential rate. Endorsements have been flooding in from a diverse number of groups and individuals who see him as a man with ability and promise. Recently he was unfairly attacked by his opponent Douglas Gansler, Maryland’s Attorney General, who is also running for governor. Gansler complains that Maryland’s health exchange implementation was mismanaged under the tutelage of Brown. This erroneous assault on the Lieutenant Governor is a desperate maneuver by Gansler to curry favor with the public. Multiple factors come into play when establishing the sophisticated software and hardware to make the health exchanges a reality. Brown depends on numerous Information Technology personnel to provide accurate and truthful data to him, they didn’t. Lieutenant Governor Brown is on record stating he could have done a better job. His honesty is refreshing, as is his extensive resume. Lieutenant Governor Brown should be judged in his own right exclusive of the man he works with, Martin O’Malley. Brown’s personal and professional accomplishments far exceed the man he works for. Maryland’s Attorney General has abused his office in numerous ways and those affected have had their careers ruined. Douglas Glansler has used Maryland Courts in a deceitful manner to move up the food chain, he should not be given the key to the Executive Suite.  When Election Day comes, the title of Governor will be awarded to Anthony Brown.
