O'Malley Gives Wine Industry Its Due
Gov. Martin O'Malley gave credit this morning to a previously unheralded player in Maryland's successful effort to maintain its AAA bond rating: the state's wine industry.
Speaking at an event in the State House this morning honoring winners of a Maryland wine competition, O'Malley recalled a daylong visit a couple of months ago to Annapolis by representatives of the nation's major bond rating agencies.
"They ended their visit here with lots of your wine at Government House," O'Malley said, using the formal name for the governor's residence.
He thanked the state's growing wine industryfor helping to "ply those bond raters" and maintain the AAA rating.
At the event, which recognized winners of the 2007 Maryland Governor's Cup Awards, O'Malley also shared what he said was a German proverb: "Drink wine, and you will sleep well. Sleep, and you will not sin. Avoid sin, and you will be saved. So drink wine and be saved."
