Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) recently appointed three judges, two of which are African American to the Prince George’s County District Court.

Hogan announced the appointment of Bryon Bereano on July 26. He is the son of Bruce Bereano, one of the best-known lobbyists in the state capital.

Bryon Bereano is an associate county attorney at the Prince George’s County Office of Law, where he focuses on zoning and property maintenance cases, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaints and other administrative matters.

Doug Mayer, a Hogan spokesman, says the governor makes all of his judicial appointments based solely on that person’s ability to unbiasedly and fairly administer the law.

Ada Clark-Edwards, a county prosecutor, and Donnaka Lewis, chief of the state’s attorney’s district court division, also were appointed.
