I thought Maryland's government was considered to be dysfunctional...
Maryland’s incoming economic development chief said one of his top priorities will be to piggyback off efforts to make doing business in the state easier.
Dominick Murray, who will begin the role in mid-January as secretary of the state’s Department of Business and Economic Development, said he wants to eliminate bureaucracy and continue to highlight “Gov. [Martin] O’Malley’s philosophy that we have a government that works.”
And this new economic development chief refused to directly address the perception that Maryland is hostile to business:
In an interview, Murry did not want to directly address the “perception” that Maryland is not a business-friendly state.
Instead, he is focused on the needed steps to “make it more recognizable that Maryland is good for business and commerce.”
“Time is money,” Murray said referring to the business community. “We want to make a lot of things easier.”
