On June 22, 2015, Hogan announced that he had been diagnosed with late stage 3 or stage 4 non-Hodgkins lymphoma, which he described as "very advanced and very aggressive".[4] Talking about his cancer diagnosis, Hogan said, "It's one that responds very aggressively to chemotherapy treatment. There's a strong chance of success."[40] Bone marrow test results announced several days later showed that the cancer was at stage 3; Hogan began four days of chemotherapy on June 27, 2015[41] and completed his treatment on October 13, 2015 after six rounds.[42]

Hogan resides in Anne Arundel County with his wife Yumi,[9] a Korean-American artist and adjunct instructor at Maryland Institute College of Art.[33] The couple met in 2001[5] and married in 2004.[34] Yumi is the mother of three adult daughters[35] – Kim Velez, Jaymi Sterling, and Julie Kim[36][37] – with whom Hogan immediately formed father-daughter relationships.[37] Hogan's brother, Patrick N. Hogan, represented a Frederick County district in the Maryland House of Delegates from 2003 to 2007 and 2011 to 2015.[38][39]

Personal life

On July 30, 2015, Hogan announced that his administration would immediately shut down the decrepit Baltimore City Detention Center, moving inmates to nearby facilities and ending what he described as a long-standing "black eye" for the state.[32]

The anticipated reduction in Purple Line costs, combined with the availability of funding allocated for the Red Line, made it possible for the Hogan administration to commit to $1.97 billion for highways and bridges across the state of Maryland, including rural areas in both Western Maryland and the Eastern Shore, as well as the densely populated counties near Baltimore and Washington D.C. The projects, which will get underway by 2018, include $1.35 billion in new projects going to construction and $625 million in preserved projects. The $1.35 billion in new projects includes $845 million for major projects and $500 million to fix bridges and improve roads.[31]

[30] In June 2015, Hogan cancelled the

Following the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African American resident of Baltimore, Maryland, civil unrest broke out in Baltimore city on April 27, 2015. To address the growing unrest, Governor Hogan declared a state of emergency and activated the Maryland National Guard.[24][25] Major General Linda Singh of the Maryland National Guard commented that there would be a "massive number" of soldiers in Maryland on the night of April 27, and that up to 5,000 soldiers were eventually deployed.[26] Maryland State Police activated 500 officers for duty in Baltimore, and requested an additional state police officers from other states.[27] During the unrest, Gov. Hogan temporarily moved his office from Annapolis to Baltimore, where the Governor and his staff remained throughout the State of Emergency.

In an attempt to balance pollution regulations on the Maryland's farming industry, in February 2015 Hogan rolled out his "Maryland Agriculture Phosphorus Initiative," creating both looser and stricter regulations for farmers on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Described by the administration as "enhanced phosphorus management tool regulations," the proposal came with two key elements: A process to give farmers more time to reduce phosphorus output on their farms and a measure that immediately stopped many farmers from contributing more to the ongoing problem of pollution in the Chesapeake Bay.[23]

In the early months of his administration, Governor Hogan earned a reputation as a centrist and pragmatist. In an editorial after Hogan's first four months as Governor, the Baltimore Sun said, "Mr. Hogan may prove to be the nation's most pragmatic Republican governor, or at least its least predictable. But the one thing that's certain is that he's no ideologue."[21] Maryland's other major newspaper, the The Washington Post, said, "Larry Hogan, who never held elective office before voters chose him last fall, was true to his promise to govern from the center in the first legislative session of his term.[22]

2014 gubernatorial campaign

Governor of Maryland

In 2011, Hogan founded Change Maryland.[13] The purpose of the anti-tax organization[14] is to advocate for lower taxes and less government spending in Maryland. As the chairman of Change Maryland, Hogan has conducted numerous studies on the economic impact of the O'Malley-Brown administration[15] and its passage of 40 consecutive tax and fee increases.[16]

Change Maryland

Hogan took a temporary leave of absence from his business to serve as Secretary of Appointments in the Bob Ehrlich Administration from 2003 to 2007.[11] In this capacity, Hogan appointed over 7,000 individuals to positions at every level of government.

Cabinet secretary

In the 1992 election cycle, Hogan was the Republican nominee for Maryland's 5th Congressional District, running against Democratic incumbent Steny Hoyer. The race was the closest in Hoyer's tenure, with Hogan winning four out of the district's five counties and taking 45% of the vote to Hoyer's 55%. No other challenger has come as close to unseating Hoyer since.

Congressional nominee

A 24-year-old Hogan first ran for office in the 1981 special election to fill the vacancy in Maryland's 5th Congressional District left by Gladys Noon Spellman. Spellman had succeeded Hogan's father in the congressional seat.[10] Hogan finished second out of twelve candidates in the Republican primary with 22.38% of the votes to Audrey Scott's 63.26%.[12]

1981 Congressional special election

As the son of a U.S. Congressman, Hogan was exposed to politics at a young age and worked in many aspects of politics including political campaigns and citizen referendums.[10] Hogan served as a Delegate to the Republican National Convention in 1976, 1980, 1984, and 1988.[11]

Civic and political career

Hogan founded his real estate business, Hogan Companies, in 1985.[8] Since then, the company has handled over $2 billion in real estate transactions.[9]

Business career

Hogan attended Upper Marlboro as a low-paid 'intergovernmental liaison'.[6] He then became involved with Republican youth groups and was a volunteer in Ronald Reagan's 1980 presidential campaign when he met Bob Ehrlich.[6]

Hogan was born in 1956 in Landover, Maryland and ran a daily newspaper delivery route there when he was ten years old.[5] Hogan attended DeMatha Catholic High School, where he was student manager of the varsity basketball team.[5] After his parents divorced in 1972, Hogan moved to Florida with his mother[6] and attended Father Lopez Catholic High School where he graduated in 1974.
