Blaine Young acknowledges a Republican governor would likely be at loggerheads with Maryland’s Democrat-controlled legislature.
But as he gears up for a possible 2014 gubernatorial run, Young said he will not be advocating for action in Annapolis. Instead, his campaign message will push the concept of a healthy stalemate.
“That’s a good thing. That’s what I’m selling. I think that would make the legislature live within their means and actually fix the issues instead of kicking the can down the road and/or implementing new taxes and fees,” the Frederick County commissioners president said Tuesday in an interview.
In a news release circulated over the weekend, Young, 40, of Monrovia, vowed that if he became governor, he would veto any bill that creates new taxes or fee increases.
