Welcome to the first of our podcasts leading up to the 2018 Annapolis Summit! January 10th will mark the the 15th year of this annual event, when I interview Maryland’s Governor, Senate President and House Speaker in a venue where audience members also have the opportunity to ask questions of our state’s top elected officials.  Between today and that date we will produce a series of podcasts that showcase the issues to be debated in the 2018 Maryland Legislative Session, which coordinate with articles written on those issues by our print partner The Daily Record.

 This first podcast focuses on how the Governor’s office and the State Legislature will address the violence that is gripping Baltimore City. We are joined by: Republican State Senator H. Wayne Norman, Jr., representing Cecil & Harford Counties; Democratic State Senator. William C Smith, Jr., representing Montgomery County; and Democratic Delegate Cory McCray from Baltimore City.
The 15th Annual Annapolis Summit will be held on the Opening Day of the Maryland General Assembly, January 10, 2018, from 7:30-9:30am, at the Governor Calvert House in Annapolis. The event starts at 7:30am with a networking breakfast, and then beginning at 8:00 I will interview Governor Larry Hogan, President of the Senate Thomas V. ” Mike” Miller and Speaker of the House Michael Busch. 
The Annapolis Summit is produced in partnership with The Daily Record and is sponsored by Maryland State Bar AssociationMaryland State Education AssociationAlexander & Cleaver, and VPC, Inc.
