Maryland Governor Wes Moore

100 State Circle
410-974-3901

As we embark together on our state’s next chapter, we commit to our shared mission to leave no one behind.

No matter where you start in life, you deserve an equal opportunity to succeed – a job you can raise a family on and the chance to create wealth for you and your family.

From building a strong and equitable economy, creating a world-class public education system, ensuring public safety, providing effective and affordable health care to those in need, and protecting the rights of every Marylander, we are committed to meeting the ​urgency of this moment with the leadership that you and your family de​​serve.

We stand united around our vision for a state where every person can thrive. No matter our differences, what we share is far greater — we share Maryland. We share a place to call home, a place I know each and every one of us care deeply about. And a place whose potential is endless if we all work towards that future collectively.

This is our moment to lead. Together, we will make this Maryland’s decade.

And we will leave no one behind.​​
