Larry Hogan has been serving as the 62nd Governor of Maryland since 2015. A member of the Republican Party, he previously served as Secretary of Appointments under Governor Bob Ehrlich from 2003 to 2007.
As the son of a U.S. Congressman, Hogan was exposed to politics at a young age and worked in many aspects of politics including political campaigns and citizen referendums. In 2011, Hogan founded Change Maryland, a non-partisan grassroots organization. The organization was a frequent critic of tax increases in Maryland during the tenure of Governor Martin O'Malley and a platform for Hogan's gubernatorial run.
