As the voice of Maryland’s legal profession and in the interest of educating the public, MSBA hosted a series of one-on-one interviews with candidates seeking to lead the state as Maryland’s next governor. Former state senator Bobby Zirkin, on behalf of the MSBA in partnership with Stevenson University, sat down with candidates for hour-long discussions of their plans to work on behalf of Marylanders.

To read summaries of the discussions and access the full video of each interview, click on each candidate’s name, below:

Monday, December 6: Rushern Baker, Jon Baron, and Peter Franchot.

Wednesday, December 8:  Kelly Schulz, Ashwani Jain, and David Lashar.

Thursday, December 9: Doug Gansler, Wes Moore, and Tom Perez.

Friday, December 10: John King

Candidates Dan Cox and Robin Ficker were invited but unable to attend the interviews last week. The MSBA hopes to interview them as well, in the near future.

The MSBA hosted nonpartisan interviews and will be holding debates with all announced candidates for Governor. The MSBA is apolitical and thus does not seek to support any particular candidate but rather raise awareness of the important perspectives every candidate brings in their quest to become Governor of our great state.
