Week One of the Hogan administration has seen a lot of firsts for the new governor

When Larry Hogan walked out of his office door at exactly 10 a.m. Wednesday into his reception room full of people awaiting his arrival, it was one of the many firsts for the new governor in his first week.

“This is the first time in 12 years that the Board of Public Works has started on time,” Hogan declared.

His predecessors Martin O’Malley and Bob Ehrlich were notoriously late by 15 or 20 minutes or more for the meeting of the powerful board that approves billions in state contracts every year.

The session itself was another first for Hogan. He said he had never attended one of the meetings of the board that generally meets twice a month on Wednesdays throughout the year.

“I’ve still got my training wheels on,” Hogan joked.

He was clearly very tentative about procedure, but he soon figured out that he could run the show pretty much the way he wants — as long as Franchot or the State Treasurer Nancy Kopp, the other two board members — go along.
