Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown certainly sounds like a man trying to raise his profile with the voters of Maryland.
In a pair of e-mails — one Wednesday, another Thursday morning — Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown announced the launch of AnthonyBrown.com, a fundraising website that he says will help Marylanders better communicate with and understand Gov. Martin O’Malley’s No. 2 man.
“This website will help me communicate with you about what we are doing in Maryland to strengthen our communities and, also, to hear from you about what more needs to be done,” Brown wrote in an e-mail to supporters.
He went on to say that a series of videos on the site would give users “more information about my background and service.” He named ending domestic violence and encouraging Marylanders to become foster or adoptive parents as issues that are important to him.
O’Malley has reached the term limit as governor and is thought to have national aspirations when he leaves Annapolis.
