The new chairman of Maryland Business for Responsive Government is calling on Gov. Martin O’Malley to create a blue ribbon commission to improve Maryland’s negative business climate.
Promising to take a more bipartisan approach as chair of MBRG, Jerry Wit, also senior vice president of St. John Properties, a major office developer, said he wrote to O’Malley Tuesday.
“Maryland’s problem of being an unfriendly state for business is a state problem,” Wit told an MBRG gathering. “We need the state to take charge of this,” and bring everyone to the table, business, nonprofits and state officials.
