John King’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 John King (D): 

In my first 100 days, I will take aggressive executive action to reverse the damage of the Hogan administration.

I will appoint a well-qualified, diverse team and begin to fill the thousands of positions left unfilled in state government.

I will immediately release the funding for medical training for abortion care provided by the Abortion Care Access Act that is currently being withheld.

I will work toward my promise to advance racial equity by launching my task force to fix racial health disparities and directing immediate reforms to state procurement.

I will release my budget that fully funds and expands on the Blueprint for Education (including universal child care birth-to-5) and allows for a greater student loan tax credit and a state higher education tuition freeze.

My administration will also begin replacing state fleet vehicles due for replacement with electric, zero-emission ones to reach my goal of having all of the state fleet be zero-emission vehicles by 2030.

I will also use my vote on the Board of Public Works to approve school infrastructure spending, expand public transportation spending, like approving the all-rail Baltimore Red Line finally, and vote against approving spending on ill-advised projects like the I-270 toll lanes plan.
