Governor Lawrence J. Hogan, Jr. was inaugurated as the 62nd governor of the State of Maryland on January 21, 2015. He is only the second Republican governor in Maryland in nearly 50 years, and the first Maryland governor from Anne Arundel County to be elected in over 100 years.
Prior to being elected, Governor Hogan worked in the private sector for more than 25 years as a successful Maryland business owner. Frustration with the out-of-touch leadership in Annapolis led him to found Change Maryland, the largest nonpartisan organization in state history, dedicated to bringing fiscal responsibility and common sense to Maryland state government.

Governor Hogan's commitment to restoring Maryland's economy and creating jobs has yielded real results. His first year in office was the most successful in total job creation and private-sector job growth in the last 15 years. Since January 2015, and under the governor's leadership, Maryland has created over 127,000 jobs.
