Peter Franchot is Maryland's Comptroller and tasked with pretty much all things financial. Primarily he collects taxes and sits on the powerful three member Board of Public Works that doles out the dollars!
This week, we sat down with Franchot to talk about his
aggressive stance on fraudulent tax preparers who are getting
Marylanders in trouble. We also talk about computer fraud and why
the legislature will not give his office the power to go after
criminals who file thousands of fraudulent returns--it's the "good
ole boy network."
Aside from that, Franchot was a force to be reckoned with to have schools start after Labor Day and getting much needed air conditioning in aging Baltimore City and County schools.
After representing Montgomery County in the House of Delegates, Franchot has been Comptroller for nearly a decade. He reaches across party lines and finds a way to get things done. Is this man playing the long game for a Gubernatorial run in 2018 or 2022? Tune in and find out....or not!
