A nominee to the Maryland State Board of Education
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A nominee to the Maryland State Board of Education faced tough questions Monday about a record of traffic offenses, including a driving under the influence of alcohol charge, and thousands of dollars in unpaid state taxes.
Brandon Cooper appeared before the Senate Executive Nominations Committee, which is considering his nomination by Republican Gov. Larry Hogan. Sen. James Brochin, D-Baltimore County, asked him about the list of traffic offenses. Cooper said he has learned from his mistakes.
"The record's there, but I want to thank Governor Hogan for seeing past those issues and recognizing the value that I bring to the board of education," Cooper said.
