AFT-Maryland President Marietta English has released the following statement on the election of Larry Hogan as governor of Maryland:

"While I am disappointed that Anthony Brown did not prevail as Maryland's next Governor, I want to thank everyone who volunteered, voted, or helped to get out the vote. I know Larry Hogan's stunning win is a shock to many and could have serious consequences for educators, public employees, and healthcare workers in Maryland. However we look forward to working with Governor-elect Hogan and ultimately continuing the fight to Reclaim the Promise of Public Education
