Hogan and Rutherford make Thank-You Tour stop at BIGGY’s Community Center


— Governor-elect Larry Hogan, Lt. Governor-elect Boyd Rutherford, and their wives, Yumi Hogan and Monica Rutherford, traveled to Baltimore on Saturday, December 20, 2014, for a Thank-You Tour stop at BIGGY’s Community Center. There, the Hogans, Rutherfords and staff passed out presents and goodie bags to local children and their families for the holidays.

“I was very happy to get back to the BIGGY’s community,” Governor-elect Hogan said. “This is a wonderful organization that is doing great things for the community, and I was thrilled to help them and to see all the kids and their families.”

Governor-elect Hogan and Lt. Governor-elect Rutherford are no strangers to the BIGGY’s organization. During the campaign, the pair and staff held a Labor Day Cookout for BIGGY’s and later toured the area and spoke to residents, many of whom were receptive to its message of change.

“This was a great opportunity to do something for an organization that does so much for our youth and inner city communities,” Rutherford said. “It feels great to be out here with the Governor-elect.”
