ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- University System of Maryland Chancellor Robert L. Caret has appointed the governor's brother as the system's vice chancellor for government relations.
The university announced Tuesday that Patrick N. Hogan, a former member of the Maryland House of Delegates and the brother of Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, will join the university system on Nov. 30.
Caret says the eight years Patrick Hogan spent in the Maryland General Assembly will help him in his duties.
Hogan will succeed Patrick J. (P.J.) Hogan, who left the vice chancellor position Sept. 30 to join Cornerstone Government Affairs. The two men are not related.
For the past 10 months, Hogan has served as deputy legislative officer for Maryland's Office of the Governor.
