Md.'s Brown to head lieutenant governors group
Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D) is now first among seconds.
Brown was elected chairman Friday of the National Lieutenant Governors Association during the organization's annual summer meeting in Biloxi, Miss.
The NLGA is the professional association for the elected officials who are first in line of succession to the governors in the 50 states and five territorial jurisdictions. In most states, the lieutenant governor is the second in command; in others, it's the secretary of state or president of the state Senate.
Brown, who was elected to office in Maryland in 2006 as the running mate of Gov. Martin O'Malley (D), succeeds Virginia Lt. Governor Bill Bolling (R) as chairman of the NLGA.
