PARRIS N. GLENDENING
The former Democratic politician signs, "best wishes," on this color 8x10 glossy.
Photograph signed: "Best Wishes/Parris N. Glendening," in silver felt tip. Color, 8x10. Parris Nelson Glendening (b.1942) is an American Democratic politician who served as the 59th Governor of Maryland from 1995 to 2003. Glendening came from an impoverished background, growing up in The Bronx before later moving to Florida. He worked his way through school, earning a scholarship to Broward Community College and eventually to Florida State University, where he became the youngest student to ever obtain a doctorate in political science in the college's history. His Ph.D earned him a professorial position at the University of Maryland for 27 years. Glendening's political career began in 1973 when he became a city councilman in Hyattsville, Maryland. He was later elected to the county council of Prince George's County, serving twice as chairman, and in 1982 he was elected the county's executive. A successful county official, Glendening took his public service initiatives to Maryland's gubernatorial level, running for Governor in 1995 to beat out Ellen Sauerbrey. While Sauerbrey claimed that Glendening used fake votes--ballots scored with names of dead African Americans in the Maryland region--to win the election, the Supreme Court ruled against her, and Glendening went on to serve two terms in offices. However, almost immediately into his second term, Glendening's approval ratings dropped to 18% after scandals regarding Prince Gerorge's County pensions became known to the public. Nonetheless, Glendening was able to devise tax reforms and economic development plans which boosted Maryland's economy overall. In 1995, Glendening faced more criticism when he made a strong declaration stating that no person serving a life sentence would be eligible for clemency unless he was seriously ill or near death. This ruling was ever controversial, and was abandoned by his predecessor, Robert Ehrlich, in the next term. Glendenning left the office with a very low approval rating. Later, he notably helped pass a bill to ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in 2001. Fine condition.
