On Wednesday January 18, 2023, at only 44 years of age, Wes Moore was sworn into office as Maryland’s new Governor. With this inauguration he has become the only Black American elected as Governor for the State. Additionally, the newly elected Lieutenant Governor, Aruna Miller, is the first woman of color to hold that title for the State. Moore’s administration is making history as the most diverse administration in Maryland’s history with several women now holding positions that were historically held by men.
During his inaugural speech, Governor Moore showcased his passion for the education system, stating that while he is in office Maryland will leave no one behind! He aims to improve the entire public school system and make the education of Maryland’s next generation a top priority. Governor Moore has promised to work with local leaders, educators, parents, and community organizations to address Maryland’s most pressing challenges as it relates to our education system.
As a celebration of this historic inauguration over 12,000 people attended The People’s Ball in Baltimore, MD the evening of January 18th. TeAM’s CEO, Charles Davis, was excited to have the honor of attending this event. It was a grand celebration of such an historic day for the State of Maryland! Charles and his wife Vivian also had the tremendous honor of meeting the Governor elect and his wife Dawn prior to the inaugural events.
