The Daily Record Power List

Government & Lobbying 2022

There are hundreds of men and women who serve in state and local government in Maryland. They deal with everything from approving basic permits to issuing sweeping executive orders. Some of them you undoubtedly know. But some on our list labor somewhat in obscurity – or at least behind the scenes. Also included are the most accomplished practitioners of advocacy, usually referred to as lobbyists. They hold no office, but they often shape the legislation that becomes – or fails to become -- law and the rules that are made to execute those laws.

In this latest edition of THE POWER LIST, The Daily Record examines the most powerful government officials and lobbyists in Maryland.
