Sen. Melony G. Griffith (D-Prince George’s), the chair of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, will resign at the end of the month to become president and CEO of the Maryland Hospital Association. Griffith told Maryland Matters Friday that she accepted the job in the morning and will begin her new position on Dec. 18. “This has been a tremendously difficult decision,” she said. Griffith, who is in her fifth year in the Senate and previously served for 16 years in the House of Delegates, has worked as a health care policy expert and advocate for her entire professional career.
