Bob Ehrlich's Running Mate to Attend Friday's River Concert
HISTORIC ST. MARY'S CITY - 7/29/2010
Mary Kane, Republican Candidate for Lt. Governor, will visit St. Mary’s College of Maryland the evening of July 30th for the final River Concert of the 2010 season.
Kane, who is former Governor Robert L. Ehrlich’s running mate, will take this opportunity to meet with Southern Maryland residents and hear them voice their concerns. Kane will be at the St. Mary’s County for Ehrlich booth from 6 – 7:30 p.m.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Mary Kane to meet with Southern Maryland residents and let them know she is listening,” said St. Mary’s County for Ehrlich Campaign Director Julie Van Orden. “Governor Ehrlich was a good friend for Southern Maryland during his first term, and this reaffirms that relationship.”
Kane is running with Ehrlich on a platform of revitalizing Maryland’s flailing economy, lowering the state’s tax burden - one of the highest in the nation - on families and small businesses and making government accountable to the citizens.
Kane brings a strong professional background to the Ehrlich ticket, having worked both in the private sector and in government. She honed her legal skills as a private attorney and as Assistant State’s Attorney for Montgomery County, and in 2005 was named Maryland’s Secretary of State.
Currently, Kane is active in her community and serves on several boards, including Suburban Hospital, a member of the Johns Hopkins Healthcare system, The Community Foundation of Montgomery County, the Montgomery County Business Roundtable for Education, Montgomery Alliance and Easter Seals.
“Mary brings a strong mix of experiences from a number of different settings to the table,” Van Orden said. “She really understands the lives and challenges of working families, and that’s something that is missing in Annapolis right now.
“When the people of Southern Maryland have a chance to meet and talk to Mary, they are going to see why she will be an asset to Maryland as our Lieutenant Governor.”
