ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Larry Hogan has appointed two people to fill vacancies in the Maryland House of Delegates.

Hogan appointed Carl Jackson and Cathi Forbes on Wednesday to the seats in the 141-member House. Both are Democrats who will represent districts in Baltimore County.

Jackson is an analyst at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. He will represent District 8 in a seat that was held by Eric Bromwell, who left to serve as Baltimore County’s first opioid strategy coordinator.

Forbes is a mediation coordinator for the Orphans’ Court of Baltimore County. She will represent District 42A in a seat that was held by Stephen Lafferty, who left to be Baltimore County’s chief sustainability officer.

Jackson and Forbes were recommended to Hogan by the Baltimore County Democratic Central Committee.
