Governor Martin O’Malley of the US State of Maryland issued a proclamation recognizing September 21 as Armenian Independence Day in Maryland, reported the Armenian Assembly of America (Assembly).

Maryland is one of many states with a bustling Armenian community that has been well represented by state and local officials who share the concerns and values of Armenian Americans.

“The Armenian people, including the Armenians in the fledgling democracy of Nagorno Karabakh have long-standing ties to and enduring bonds with the United States,” the proclamation reads, in particular.

“I am very thankful that the Governor of our great state has issued this proclamation celebrating Armenia's 22nd independence day,” stated Assembly Board Member Annie Totah. “Governor O’Malley has helped Maryland Armenians prosper and has worked tirelessly to make Maryland one of the top states in the country. It’s been a real pleasure for me working with him and his administration,” Totah said.
