Gubernatorial Candidates Clash On Economic Policy - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Gubernatorial Candidates Clash On Economic Policy

Posted: Updated:

TOWSON, Md. (AP) - All three Democratic candidates in the governor's race agree Maryland's economic policies need work, but they disagree sharply about exactly how much.
    
Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown praised the developments of the last seven years during a candidate forum Thursday evening at Towson University. His opponents took turns after him and did not hear one another's remarks.
    
Brown said Maryland's job growth has exceeded that in every other mid-Atlantic state since the recession, and he defended decisions to take on state debt.
    
Del. Heather Mizeur said these debts result largely from unnecessary tax breaks and loopholes for corporations and the super-rich. She stressed a need for more public investment.
    
Attorney General Doug Gansler argued Maryland should reduce taxes to attract more businesses and create jobs.
    
The primary is June 24.
