ANNAPOLIS — Gov. Martin O’Malley delivered his final State of the State address Thursday to a joint session of the Maryland General Assembly. After his speech, Maryland lawmakers responded to O’Malley’s address:

“Maryland has a lot to be proud of. We’ve had a strong commitment to progressive priorities.” — Gubernatorial candidate and Delegate Heather Mizeur, D-Montgomery

“It’s his last presentation of this and I know he’s very proud of the achievements that he’s had. A lot of us fundamentally disagree with some of the core to that.” — Senate Minority Leader David Brinkley, R-Frederick

“Minimum wage, marijuana, universal pre-K … We will be tackling these progressive priorities moving forward.” — Mizeur

“The governor must be using Common Core math equations for his numbers. He’s getting partial credit for his answers and they don’t add up.” — Del. Michael McDermott, R-Wicomico

“If people see the schools rated as high as they are, people will want to move to Maryland.” — Sen. Jennie Forehand, D-Montgomery

“I notice (O’Malley) didn’t mention that Maryland is No. 44 for business-friendly states.” — McDermott

“It was refreshing and optimistic to hear after all these years of hard work.” — Del. Anne Healey, D-Prince George’s

“This administration has been writing checks for eight years that they can’t cash, and the people of Maryland are going to have to pay for it.” — McDermott

“I’m just really proud of Maryland because of the way things have been done and the money we have spent. (The O’Malley administration) cut the spending by $9.1 billion.” — Forehand

“The governor’s theory fails economics 101.” — Senator Richard Colburn, R-Dorchester
