The Inauguration of Maryland’s 62nd Governor

Overcast skies gave way to big wet snow flakes as Lawrence J. Hogan, Jr. was sworn-in as the 62nd Governor of the State of Maryland today.  Hogan’s running mate, Boyd K. Rutherford, was also sworn-in as Maryland’s 9th Lt. Governor.

The official Oaths of Office were actually given in the Senate Chambers at twelve noon, and they were broadcast over TV monitors outside. All the officials and dignitaries then moved outdoors to the stage set up on the West Portico of the Statehouse. Immediate past-Governor Martin O’Malley and several former governors were on-hand to watch as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie officially presented the new Governor.
