a little more from Maryland Progress indicator:

Actions Taken by Governor OMalley

Providing a Living Wage
During the 2014 Legislative Session, Governor O'Malley and Lt. Governor Brown led the successful campaign to raise Maryland's minimum wage to $10.10. Hundreds of thousands of Maryland workers will receive a raise, injecting money into the economy and creating good-paying, family-supporting jobs.

According to the nonpartisan Pew Center on the States, Maryland is one of the Top Three states for upward economic mobility based on a workerís ability to move up the corporate ladder.

Access to Higher Education
Since 2007-08, Maryland has done more than any other state in the nation to hold down the cost of college. This year, the University System of Marylandís tuition increase is capped at 3%, including a freeze at Morgan State University and St. Maryís College.

Strengthening Neighborhoods, Towns, & Local Economies
Maryland invests in smart growth by strengthening neighborhoods, towns, and local economies. Traditional programs like Main Street Maryland, Community Legacy, and Neighborhood BusinessWorks strive to strengthen the economic potential of our traditional main streets and neighborhoods.

Assistance to Needy Families
In order to support people and families confronting economic challenges, Maryland has committed resources to help those who were particularly affected by the foreclosure crisis. Maryland has reformed state laws, provided counseling and financial assistance, and has become a national leader in foreclosure prevention. Maryland continues to provide leadership and creative responses to the foreclosure crisis with expanded counseling services and outreach efforts.


I an deeply disappointed that under the new GOP governor, the links that WERE there are now no longer able to be found. The new governor made the links backing all of this up disappear.

Also, the website itself was dismantled after Larry Hogan took over as governor. This was what used to be there:

2. It's really pathetic that when I go to the links

it goes to a totally different site.

and to be really honest, I could not even get into the links without giving permission for it to use my location for at least a day.

I know I am veering into Hogan territory here, but goodness, that man is trying to undo EVERYTHING that O'Malley helped to build.
