ANNAPOLIS, MD (February 14, 2010) – Governor Martin O’Malley will join leaders and stakeholders in childhood development, health, and early childhood education for an important discussion on our shared progress in these areas and the ongoing need to protect these investments. The Governor will facilitate a discussion with attendees on how progress in the area of early childhood education and health impacts our ability to be a winner in the new economy.
Following the State of the State address, Governor O’Malley announced a series of “Maryland Forward” local policy forums to advance many of those initiatives, serving as a continuation of the “Maryland Forward” forum series before the 2011 Inauguration. Tomorrow’s forum will begin a series of smaller groups of local stakeholders throughout the 2011 legislative session focused on specific policy areas that will help Maryland be a winner in the new economy, protect our neighborhoods, and create jobs.
Governor O’Malley’s focus on the new economy and Maryland’s future generations this week will also include testimony before House and Senate Committees in support of InvestMaryland, a meeting with Maryland’s Congressional delegation to discuss federal partnerships, and an open discussion with Maryland students at the 2011 Maryland Youth Inaugural.
