Ashwani Jain’s 100-Day Plan

Maryland Matters invited the 2022 candidates for governor to answer the following question: 

In 300 words or less, please share your vision for your first 100 days in office. Please include individual policy priorities and specific actions you will commit to take if you are elected.

The response from Ashwani Jain (D): 

My name is Ashwani Jain (he/him) and I’m running for Governor to make politics inclusive and accessible.

That’s why I’m fully accessible (100% of our events are free; I don’t take donations from developers, businesses, PACs or polluters; and I’m the only Governor candidate to personally meet voters in a different county each day of the week).

That’s why I’m fully accountable (we are the first statewide campaign in the U.S. to be 100% run by residents — from every age, background and all 24 counties.

And that’s why I’m fully transparent (we’ve shared the most detailed, comprehensive and fully paid-for policy agenda since last January 2021).

Furthermore, each of the 150 policies detailed on our website ( were created by residents (not consultants) who will be impacted by those policies.

One of our signature programs that tackles issues comprehensively and will provide residents more disposable income and a decreased cost of living is called the “Maryland Now Plan”, which will eliminate the state income tax for 95% of Maryland workers (anyone making less than $400,000); make public transit free; create the nation’s first guaranteed jobs program; legalize marijuana while expunging records; and get money out of politics.

Full details can be found here.

And while I would be the nation’s youngest Governor, I have the experience, perspective and detailed policy solutions needed to serve you well.
