Lawrence J. Hogan Sr., Md. Republican who called for Nixon's impeachment, dies at 88 - Washington Post

Monday, May 01, 2017

Watergate almost certainly cost him his party’s gubernatorial nomination, which was won by Louise Gore a month after Nixon left office. Gore lost the general election in a landslide to Democrat Marvin Mandel.Critics from both parties charged that Mr. Hogan’s call for Nixon’s impeachment was an opportunistic effort to gain statewide publicity during the governor’s race. But in a 1987 interview with The Washington Post, he said he had no such calculated purpose in mind.“I assumed that in coming out for impeachment I would lose the nomination, which I did,” he said. “It had absolutely nothing to do with politics. I still resent people saying that now.”Lawrence Joseph Hogan was born Sept. 30, 1928, in Boston and grew up in Washington. His father, a bookbinder, was a Democrat and an ardent union member.Mr. Hogan graduated from Gonzaga College High School in 1946 and from Georgetown University in 1949. He received a law degree from Georgetown in 1954 and a master’s degree in public relations from American University in the mid-1960s.He joined the FBI in 1948 while still in college and spent more than a decade with the law enforcement agency. He opened a public relations firm in 1959 and later became a lecturer at the University of Maryland in the 1960s, known on campus for his 8 a.m. lectures and tough grading.In 1978, four years after his failed gubernatorial campaign, Mr. Hogan returned to public life by running for Prince George’s county executive. That year, inspired by California’s budget-cutting Proposition 13, Prince George’s leaders pushed through the Tax Reform Initiative by Marylanders, placing a cap on county property taxes.Mr. Hogan capitalized on that trend, making lower taxes and fiscal restraint the central themes of his campaign. Brandishing a report on how he could cut the county budget by $43 million, he castigated county leaders for lavish spending on schools, social programs and personnel. He was elected by a 3-to-2 margin over incumbent Winfield M. Kelly Jr.As county executive, Mr. Hogan eliminated more than 3,000 jobs, including those of more than 500 teachers. He slashed the budgets for libraries and schools, and infrastructure spending fell to a bare minimum.From the start, Mr. Hogan had a bitter relationship with the County Council, often battling over political appointments. Once, in a fit of rage, Mr. Hogan threatened to castrate Democratic Council Chairman Parris N. Glendening, who eventually succeeded him. Glendening served as Maryland governor from 1995 to 2003.Mr. Hogan’s strained relations with labor leaders helped precipitate a 1980 strike, in which 1,500 county employees walked off the job for 11 days. Amid the tumult, a prisoners’ riot broke out at the county jail. Mr. Hogan fired 121 jail guards, and the other employees went back to work without a contract.During his four-year term, Mr. Hogan reduced the county’s property tax rate by 20 percent, cut the county’s budget and eliminated 2,400 public employees from the county payroll. He was also credited with improving the county’s low-income housing program and with doubling the number of African American police officers, including naming the first black deputy police chief in Prince George’s.As the only Republican officeholder in a heavily Democratic jurisdiction, Mr. Hogan attributed many his problems as county executive to partisan rancor.The Fraternal Order of Police, which had supported Mr. Hogan’s run for county executive in 1978, turned against him after contract disputes and other quarrels. The leader of the police support group called Mr. Hogan “a little Napoleon.”Mr. Hogan’s final campaign
