How will Wes Moore govern? Awaiting the specific policy priorities behind the bold campaign promises.

November 14, 2022

Maryland’s next governor is setting high expectations. Both before and after his landslide victory Tuesday, Democratic Gov.-elect Wes Moore has talked of a vast, idealistic vision for his time leading state government. Tackling racial and economic disparities. Ending child poverty. Making Maryland a leader in technology and a state with the workforce of the future. But for someone who’s spent his career outside government — aside from a few internships and a yearlong fellowship in Washington, D.C. — it’s not yet known how Moore will prioritize and govern both for short- and long-term goals. Also, to be determined is how he’ll manage a bureaucracy of 40,000 employees, a historically depleted number that may lead to a hiring spree.
