Former Gov. Robert Ehrlich (JD '82) was Maryland's first Republican governor (2003-07) in 36 years when he was elected. His policies turned state budget deficits in to a surplus and created 100,000 new jobs. He authored Maryland's first charter schools law, and advocated for investments in public schools, funding for need-base college scholarships, and minority business advancement. He authored the historic Chesapeake Bay Restoration Act to restore America's largest estuary.
Ehrlich, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1995-2003, is the author of four books on contemporary American politics and issues confronting America. His most recent book, "Bet You Didn't See That One Coming" (2018, Post-Hill Press), is an analysis of the unexpected election of Donald J. Trump, the earth-shattering changing of the guard in Washington, how it's turned establishment politics on its head, and what it all means for the future of the nation.
