WASHINGTON — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan canceled his appearances on Thursday to be with his ailing father.
The governor’s father, former Congressman Larry Hogan Senior, had a major stroke on Saturday, his office reports.
The elder Hogan has been receiving professional care since Saturday, said Deputy Director of Communications Amelia Chasse.
“Unfortunately, his condition has declined, and the governor postponed his schedule to be by his side,” Chasse said in a statement.
Larry Hogan Senior represented Maryland’s 5th Congressional District — an area that includes Prince George’s and Charles counties — from 1969 through 1975. He went on to be Prince George’s County Executive from December 1978 through December 1982.
