Dear Jordan,

I was excited to read your Letter to the Editor asking for information about Maryland for your State Fair report! As a lifelong Marylander and governor of Maryland, helping people learn about our great state is one of my favorite subjects!

Here in Maryland, we love crabs served with a lot of spicy Old Bay seasoning; our sports teams, the Baltimore Orioles and Baltimore Ravens; outdoor activities like hiking and going to the beach; and most of all, we love our state flag.

From the peaks of the Allegheny Mountains in Western Maryland, to the rich and varied cultural history in our central region, to the sandy beaches of our Eastern Shore, Maryland has a lot of great activities for people of all ages – especially kids! But the thing that makes Maryland the greatest is the people who live here.

I have included a few items to help with your research:  a Maryland map, a miniature Maryland flag, as well as a signed photo. If you’re looking for additional information, I encourage you to check out where you can learn all about our state.

Again, thank you for choosing Maryland for your class project. I hope you hear from Marylanders from all across our state, and I wish you good luck on your report and at the State Fair!


Larry Hogan

Baltimore Post-Examiner Staff

Baltimore Post-Examiner is run by several journalists – some who worked at the Washington Post, Baltimore Examiner and other regional and national publications. It’s the Post-Examiner because we love the play on the word “Post” but we also are hoping to answer that question: What’s next after newspapers? We see a lot of websites come and go – and many simply are not making it for various reasons. Now celebrating our sixth year of offering our readers "a little bit of everything" we continue to break that cycle. Contact the author.
