CRABCAKE: Franchot: Taxes, Beer, the Annapolis Machine and a Run for Governor (March 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today, we sit down with Maryland’s Comptroller, Peter Franchot–who I might add is one of the most accessible elected officials– to talk about his roles, his failed Reform on Tap program, taxes, and his battle with the “Annapolis Machine” that is trying to strip him of some of his duties in a vendetta. And with Governor Hogan as a term-limited Governor, we find out if Peter Franchot might be next in line!

MD Governor Larry Hogan: Road Kill, Sick Leave and Just How He Manages the Job (E-17)

Larry Hogan is Maryland’s 62nd Governor with some “through the roof” approval ratings. He figured we could not do too much damage and agreed to sit down and crab with us a for a bit.

We discussed his 2017 plans–BOOST, paid sick leave and the Road Kill Bill. We talked about President-Elect Trump, and what is on his Netflix queue. Spoiler: he has YET to see House of Cards.
All in all, this is an insightful look into the Governor who took the electorate and the legislature by surprise by defeating sitting Lt. Governor Anthony Brown!

Speaker Michael Busch – Maryland in a Trump World…and More! (E-16)

Michael Busch is the Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates and is one of the longest serving Delegates and has been the Speaker for the past 13 years.  The man knows Maryland!

This week the Crabs go on the road and talk to Speaker Busch in the Speaker’s Lounge in the Annapolis State House. As always, we have no set agenda and the conversation ran from “what the hell does a Trump presidency mean for Maryland?” to gerrymandering, to the rising stars in Maryland politics, and exactly why Delegate Herb McMillan was banned from the Governor’s Mansion. Check it out and see what one of Maryland’s top politicos has to say on The Maryland Crabs!
