At 5 pm today, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (R) plans to address the state and provide the final details of how he plans to reopen the state of Maryland for business. This process could begin as soon as this coming week. Unfortunately for him, some Democratic leaders around the state aren’t even waiting for him to announce the details of the plan and are dismissing Hogan’s agenda before he even speaks. This includes the interim Mayor of Baltimore, Jack Young. He’s already declared that local officials in and around Charm City aren’t “comfortable” with rushing into the grand reopening and they will decide for themselves when they are ready to start returning to business as usual.
Gov. Larry Hogan plans to speak Wednesday about when he will start the first phase of Maryland’s recovery, but some local leaders may not be onboard with a quick reopening.
Gov. Hogan spoke to mayors and county executives from around the state Tuesday including Baltimore City Mayor Jack Young who says it is not time yet.
“We don’t feel comfortable right now to really open up so we are going to continue to follow the advice of our health professionals, and when they say it’s time for us to relax some things, we’ll do it,” Mayor Young said during a press briefing.
