Hogan Talks Job Loss and Economy During Visit to Eastern Shore

Posted:
 SALISBURY, Md.- Gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan made a campaign stop to the Chesapeake Shipbuilding Corporation to talk about job loss on the Eastern Shore and the economy. Logan's visit was part of his Change Maryland Bus Tour.

Last week, Lt. Governor Anthony Brown (D-Md.) came to Salisbury to talk education and school construction funding.

This week, Hogan is in town to talk about jobs and the economy. The Anne Arundel County small business owner said the Eastern Shore stands out when it comes to unemployment.

"We've lost 11 percent of our businesses on the Shore during the O'Malley-Brown administration and unemployment here is higher than the rest of the state and the rest of the nation,” Hogan said.

Hogan tells WBOC the state is overtaxed, over regulated and not business-friendly. He claimed the state lost more than 8,000 businesses and 200,000 jobs.

During the candidates' final debate, Brown said Maryland ranks number one for small businesses. According to Brown's campaign website, the state created more than 30,000 jobs over the last 12 months. Hogan said that is not true.

In a statement Brown's campaign manager said, “Anthony Brown is the only candidate who has released a five-point jobs plan that includes targeted tax credits for small businesses and entrepreneurs to create more jobs for workers throughout the Eastern Shore.”

Hogan explains how he plans to tackle job loss.

“I'll work in a bipartisan manner to reign in reckless government spending and begin rolling back the O'Malley-Brown administration's 40 straight job-killing tax hikes, so Eastern Shore families and employers can keep more of their hard-earned money,” Hogan explain in a release prior to his stop in Salisbury.

During the last debate, Brown claimed Hogan wants to provide tax relief for corporations.

“It's just also completely not true. My entire focus for the past 3.5 years has been on trying to rollback the 40 consecutive O'Malley Brown tax increases,” Hogan said.

In a statement, Brown's manager said “ the only plan Hogan has released includes a $450 million cut to school construction and has been debunked in the press because his numbers 'just don't add up.'"

Adam Dubitsky, a representative for Hogan's campaign, told WBOC last week the claim is not true. He said the multimillion-dollar figure was a typo in a 2013 audit report.

Early voting starts tomorrow in Maryland.
