On Monday, our nation will commemorate Memorial Day. For some, this will be a very personal occasion, a time to pause to remember the family and friends whose sacrifices secured our country's safety and preserved its liberty. We extend our thanks and deep appreciation to these fallen service members. 

Let us honor their service by giving all our veterans the care, support, and respect that they have earned.

Thousands of armed services members are still standing watch around the world. Please keep them, and the families at home who stand with them, in your thoughts.

Says Governor is Putting Politics above Working Families

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz today issued the following statement following Governor Hogan's decision to veto House Bill 1, the Maryland Healthy Working Families Act:

"Today, Governor Hogan made his position clear: he is putting political interests above the needs of working families.

Paid sick leave is a public health priority in our state. The sensible policy passed by the Maryland General Assembly would have prevented illnesses, increased productivity, and saved lives. With this heartless veto, Governor Hogan is putting the future of working families across our state at risk.

I hope the members of the Maryland General Assembly will come together to override this decision and ensure that Marylanders will not have to continue to make the impossible decision between keeping their job and following doctor’s orders."
