ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says his nominees for top-level jobs aren’t getting a fair shake in the Maryland General Assembly.
In a news conference Wednesday where Hogan gave a progress report of his legislative agenda, the governor complained that his nominee for the Department of Planning had been mistreated by the Senate’s executive nominations committee.
Hogan called the hearing process for Wendi Peters “disgraceful” and said she was questioned in a “demeaning, sexist way.”
Peters’ nomination was rejected by the committee, whose members found her unqualified for the job.
