BLOG: Maryland’s Economic Strength

Both Maryland and Virginia have suffered since the recession, but are growing together.

By Raquel Guillory, Director of Communications

Maryland and Virginia have long been among our nation’s economic leaders. Even as we move forward out of this deep recession, both states are creating jobs and expanding opportunity especially in the critical sectors of science, security and innovation. As a result of our close proximity, Maryland and Virginia are often benchmarked with each other. Watch the video above to learn more about the similarities and differences between these two states in our Chesapeake region.

Martin O'Malley is the governor of Maryland. He writes a regular blog for his official website.

Love how you wrap us in with Virginia...maybe you're suggesting we just join forces since so many of our beloved Marylanders are fleeing this state and its high taxes and anti-business policies and moving to Virginia where they are welcoming them with open arms.

Yeah right Guv. Like Virginia wants any association with the Clown Crew and cesspool of idiocy that is MD State Government! LOL!

LOL Exacept for the fact that the population of Maryland is actually increasing... http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/24000.html But as the late Republican Messiah Ronnie Reagan said "Facts are Stupid Things."

It's increasing because all the freeloaders and illegal aliens are flocking here. The Dream Act on the ballot question proves it. The future is clear. Higher taxes to support the freeloaders.
