Gov. Larry Hogan told a constituent on social media Thursday that Anne Arundel Health Officer Nilesh Kalyanaraman “doesn’t really know what he is talking about” as he provides guidance on reopening county schools. Readers reached out to The Capital to point out the response, in which Hogan responded to a comment on his Facebook page dismissing the knowledge of a physician whose appointment he approved less than two years ago. In a statement, County Executive Steuart Pittman invited Hogan to speak with Kalyanaraman, who declined to comment for this story.
