MD AG Gansler, Lt. Gov. Brown Discuss Campaigns

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - Democratic gubernatorial candidates Doug Gansler and Anthony Brown both made appearances at Tawes Crab and Clam Bake to talk about their upcoming campaigns.

Gansler, currently serving as attorney general, has previously said his formal announcement will be made in September -- but he spoke candidly about changes he'll make for the Eastern Shore.
    
"Where the [Eastern] Shore goes, so does Maryland," said Gansler. "One of the biggest issues, if not the biggest issue is jobs and the economy and we have to reverse the trend of the anti-business, high tax climate that we're in. We've had 40 taxes over the last six or seven years and we'll have to cut that down, it's killing people."

While Gansler spoke on jobs, lieutenant governor Brown took a broader approach for his campaign. Brown says that he intends to add more jobs throughout the entire state, but this also comes with an overall quality of life in Maryland.    
 
"People want the same things for themselves and their families," said Brown. "They want jobs and opportunities made available by good education, clean environment, access to quality of affordable health care, a safe place and secure place that can raise their family."
