Gov. Larry Hogan on Friday officially appointed Angela Gibson to fill state Sen. Nathaniel Oaks' old seat in the House of Delegates.

Gibson was recommended by the Baltimore City Democratic Central Committee to represent District 41. Gibson is currently Mayor Catherine Pugh's legislative liaison to the City Council and spent more than 29 years in various mayor's office roles.

“I am confident that Angela Gibson is prepared to serve her constituency in Baltimore City,” Hogan said in a statement. “I offer her my sincere congratulations and look forward to working with her to continue changing Maryland for the better.”

Gibson was sworn in Friday morning.

Oaks was appointed to the state Senate to replace Lisa Gladden, who resigned in January.
