Harford County Chamber of Commerce April Luncheon
Speaker: Peter Franchot, Comptroller of Maryland
Peter Franchot was elected Maryland’s 33rd Comptroller on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2006. Prior to his election to statewide office, Peter served 20 years in the Maryland General Assembly, representing the residents of Montgomery County. During his time in the Maryland House of Delegates, Franchot was a member of the Appropriations Committee and served as Chairman of the Transportation & the Environment Subcommittee. Throughout his career, he has been a strong advocate for education, health care, transportation and environmental protection initiatives.
Since becoming the State’s chief fiscal officer, Franchot has worked to level the playing field for Maryland taxpayers, cracking down on cigarette smugglers and illegal alcohol and motor fuel sales. He has closed tax loopholes, launched the first-in-the-nation program to ensure that federal contractors are paying their fair share in State taxes, and has sought statewide compliance with Maryland’s minority business enterprise participation goals. Franchot has also been a strong advocate for the State’s burgeoning life sciences industries and a leader in the fight to invest State resources in cost effective, environmentally-friendly “green” technologies.
