O'Malley Appoints King to Senate
Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) today named Del. Nancy J. King (D-Montgomery) to fill out the remainder of state Sen. Patrick J. Hogan's term in the General Assembly, ratifying her selection by local Democrats.
King, 57, of Montgomery Village, has said she also expects to be tapped by Senate President Michael V. Mike Miller (D-Calvert) for the budget and tax committee, where Hogan chaired an education subcommittee. Hogan last week stepped down from the legislature to become the chief lobbyist for the University of Maryland system. King will complete his four-year term, which began this year.
Montgomery's Democratic Central Committee chose King for the seat, picking her last week from a field of three. Her name was then submitted to the governor to make the appointment official.
