Rock­ey­moore Cum­mings en­ters gover­nor’s race

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

Maya Rock­ey­moore Cum­mings — a con­sult­ing firm owner who is mar­ried to Rep. Eli­jah Cum­mings — is jump­ing into a crowded Demo­cratic race for gover­nor.

Ms. Rock­ey­moore Cum­mings an­nounced her can­di­dacy Thurs­day. She be­comes the eighth se­ri­ous con­tender to join the June 26 Demo­cratic pri­mary.

The 46-yearold has never held elec­tive of­fice. She runs the Wash­ing­ton­based pub­lic pol­icy con­sult­ing com­pany Global Pol­icy So­lu­tions.

She told The Bal­ti­more Sun she wants to build on Mary­land’s unique all-payer health care sys­tem to bring it as close as pos­si­ble to uni­ver­sal health care. She said Re­pub­li­can Gov. Larry Ho­gan has short­changed pub­lic tran­sit and pro­posed a trans­porta­tion plan that would do lit­tle to re­lieve traf­fic con­ges­tion.
