Maryland Governor Larry Hogan on Starting School After Labor Day (VIDEO)

During a conversation with Comptroller Peter Franchot at a Greater Bethesda Chamber of Commerce event on Friday morning in North Bethesda, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan did not mince any words when he was asked about the controversy surrounding his executive order mandating a post Labor Day school start.

“This is one of the most ridiculous things I have heard in my entire life,” he said.

“Most other states do it. It’s nonsense. You can have whiny people on school boards. It’s not going to change the fact that this is what is gonna happen in the state and it’s what almost everybody wants,” Hogan said.

The governor also explained the back story behind his action.
