Martin Joseph O'Malley (born January 18, 1963) is an American Democratic politician who is currently serving as the 61st Governor of Maryland. Previously, he served as the mayor of Baltimore from 1999 to 2007. He is currently the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association.

Early life, education and career

O'Malley grew up in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Potomac, Maryland, the child of an attorney. O'Malley attended the Our Lady of Lourdes School in Bethesda[1] and Gonzaga College High School, the same school of such political notables as Patrick Buchanan. He went to college at The Catholic University of America, graduating in 1985. Later that year he enrolled at the University of Maryland School of Law in Baltimore, earning his J.D. in 1988 and passing the bar that same year.[2]

Early political career

In December 1982, while still in college, O'Malley signed on with the Gary Hart presidential campaign for the 1984 election. In late 1983, he volunteered to go to Iowa. He phone-banked, organized volunteers, and played guitar and sang[3] at small fundraisers and other events.

In 1986, while in law school, O'Malley was named by then-Congresswoman Barbara Mikulski as her state field director for her successful primary and general election campaigns for the U.S. Senate. Later he served as a legislative fellow in Senator Mikulski's office from 1987-1988.

In 1988, he began dating his future wife, Catherine Curran, the daughter of the State's Attorney General. Later that year, O’Malley was hired as an Assistant State's Attorney for the City of Baltimore. He would hold that position until 1990.

In 1990, O'Malley, ran for the Maryland State Senate in District 43. He lost the Democratic Primary to John A. Pica Jr. by 44 votes.[4] A year later he ran for a vacant Baltimore City Council seat to represent the 3rd District. He served from 1991 to 1999. As Councilman, he served as Chairman of the Legislative Investigations Committee and Chairman of the Taxation and Finance Committee.

Mayor of Baltimore

O'Malley announced his campaign for Mayor of Baltimore in 1999. He won the Democratic Primary with over 50% of the vote. He was then elected Mayor of Baltimore in the General election with over 90% of the vote in what was seen as a heavily Democratic city.[5] In 2004, O'Malley was re-elected in the general election with 88% of the vote.

In O'Malley's first year in office, he adopted a statistics-based tracking system modeled after Compstat, a crime management program first employed in the mid-1990s by William J. Bratton and former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to assist the New York City Police Department. The program aimed to initiate a performance-based system using computerized databases to track targets and results.[6] There is a weekly meeting in which city department managers meet with the Mayor's office and discuss their office's results. According to the office of then Mayor O'Malley, CitiStat has saved Baltimore residents more than $350 million. In 2004, O'Malley's CitiStat accountability tool won Harvard University's Innovations in American Government award.[7] Its success has garnered the attention of delegations from places like England, India, Texas, and others.[8]

Stained Glass window of Mayor Martin O'Malley.

During the first Mayoral campaign, O’Malley's made improving public safety a priority. In 2005, Baltimore was ranked the sixth most dangerous city in the United States; in 2006, it was ranked the twelfth most dangerous city.[9]

In 2005, Baltimore's reported homicide rate was five times that of New York City, which had one of the lowest crime rates of America's largest cities.[10] According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Unified Crime Reports for 2000 and 2003, violent crimes (homicide, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) in Baltimore declined from 16,003 in 2000 (O'Malley's first year in office) to 13,789 in 2003. In terms of homicides, there were 261 in 2000; 256 in 2001; 253 in 2002; and 270 in 2003.[11] More recently, there were 276 homicides in 2004 and 269 in 2005.

The latest police statistics for 2008, according to the Baltimore Sun, show that "shootings are down by 26 percent over last year, from 361 to 266... Meanwhile, rates of other violent crimes, including assaults, rapes and robberies, has not changed much since 2007..."[12]

Controversy

The Washington Post wrote that "[t]o date, no evidence has surfaced of a systemic manipulation of crime statistics" by the government under O'Malley.[13]

O'Malley stated that his administration had greatly improved the Baltimore City Public School System, and that they "are on the mend for the first time in decades." As one of his five most prominent achievements, O'Malley says that his administration "improved student test scores across the board" while noting that much work remains.[citation needed] A national study on the graduation rates in the nation's 50 biggest cities found Baltimore to be second to last with respect to dropout rates (with Detroit in last place).[14] As the city school system is independently controlled by a board jointly appointed by the mayor and the governor of Maryland, some argue that it is difficult to hold specific elected officials responsible for either the successes or failures of the city school system.[15]

Major land developer Edward St. John was fined $55,000 by the Maryland Office of the State Prosecutor for making illegal contributions to the O'Malley campaign. The Washington Times reported later that the Governor's administration had issued a press release touting a new $28 million highway interchange leading to one of St. John's properties. Governor O'Malley's spokesman said there was no "quid pro quo" and a spokesman for the County Executive noted that the project had been a county transportation priority since before both O'Malley and the Executive were elected.[16]

The "MD4Bush" incident

In early 2005 Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich fired an aide, Joseph Steffen, for spreading rumors of marital infidelity about O'Malley on the Internet. O'Malley and his wife had previously held a highly publicized press conference to deny the rumors and accuse Republicans of partisan politics. The discussions in which Steffen posted the rumors were initiated by an anonymous user going by the name "MD4Bush", later revealed to be Maryland Democratic Party official Ryan O'Doherty.[17]

Media attention

In 2002, Esquire magazine named O’Malley "The Best Young Mayor in the Country," and in 2005, TIME magazine named him one of America's "Top 5 Big City Mayors".[18] In August 2005, Business Week Magazine Online named O'Malley as one of five "New Faces" in the Democratic Party. Business Week said that O'Malley "has become the Party's go-to guy on protecting the homeland. The telegenic mayor has developed a detailed plan for rail and port safety and has been an outspoken critic of White House security priorities."[19]

Homeland security

In 2003, national Democratic leaders asked him to give the Democratic Response to the President's weekly radio address in which he spoke about Homeland Security.

During the 2004 presidential campaign, Sen. John Kerry invited O'Malley to speak on the topic in Wisconsin. In 2004, O'Malley was one of the featured speakers at the Democratic National Convention in the FleetCenter in Boston, Massachusetts. In his speech, he focused on Homeland Security stating "Sadly and unforgivably almost three years after that fateful day when thousands of moms and dads, sons and daughters didn’t come home from work on September 11, America's cities and towns, America's ports and borders and America's heartland remain needlessly vulnerable".

Governor of Maryland

2006 gubernatorial elections

O'Malley was nominated by the Democratic Party to challenge incumbent Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich in the November 2006 election. O'Malley featured the news article "Running early, running hard" [20] on his new web site, launched June 2005. It stated, "O'Malley has yet to officially announce his run for governor, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been busy on the campaign trail."

O'Malley selected Anthony G. Brown, Delegate from Prince George's County, lawyer, and a 27-year Army veteran, including a tour in the Iraq War, as his running mate. O'Malley was expected to face Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan in the Democratic primary. Duncan dropped out of the race on June 22, 2006.

In 2004, friends of O'Malley speculated that he might be a presidential candidate in 2012.[21]

O'Malley defeated incumbent Gov. Ehrlich in the November 7, 2006, gubernatorial election by a 6.5% margin.[22]

Term as Governor

Martin O'Malley's inauguration

O'Malley was sworn in as Governor on January 17, 2007. Soon after coming to office, O'Malley closed the Maryland House of Correction in Jessup, Maryland, a notoriously violent maximum-security prison facility.[23]

As fill-in for Hillary Rodham Clinton during a Democratic convention on June 2, 2007 in New Hampshire, O'Malley expanded "his exposure among the party elite and activists."[24]

Governor O'Malley called a Special Session in November, 2007 to close a structural budget deficit of $1.7 billion.[25] A structural deficit differs from an actual deficit in that it is based on out-year projected data. In response to this projected deficit for 2008–2009, O'Malley and some Democratic Maryland lawmakers passed and signed the largest tax increases in Maryland history. The plan would raise total state tax collections 14%.[26] A Maryland Senate panel modified the tax proposal, removing "tax breaks for middle- and working-class families."[27][28]

In years past, slot machine gambling has been a heated topic in both houses of the General Assembly. Proponents claim slots could help ease the burden of Maryland's structural deficit. O'Malley's predecessor, Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr. made slot machine gambling a priority from the beginning of his four-year term. However, associated legislation was not passed by the Democrat-controlled legislative branch. O'Malley has said that he supports the implementation of a limited number of slot machines only at horse racing tracks to help sustain the horse racing industry. In November 2008, voters state-wide approved the introduction of slots in Maryland.

In April 2009, O'Malley signed a traffic speed camera enforcement law (Senate Bill 277), a bill which he supported and fought for in order to help raise revenue to try to balance the record deficit facing Maryland. Through strong lobbying by O'Malley, the bill was revived after first having been defeated. After a second vote, the measure barely passed by a few votes. The bill continues to face harsh bi-partisan criticism and has been called a tax on drivers by opponents of the bill. The bill has also sparked a ballot referendum effort sponsored by the not-for-profit group Maryland For Responsible Enforcement.[citation needed]

In September 2009, O'Malley and Elijah Cummings announced the 'Healthy Smiles' dental tour “Together, we have resolved to do everything within our power to prevent avoidable tragedies like the loss of Deamonte Driver, who passed away with an untreated toothache last year,” said Governor O’Malley. “That’s why today, we’re announcing the kick off of the ‘Healthy Smiles’ dental tour to promote awareness and highlight the importance of children’s dental health. With partners like the Deamonte Driver Dental Project and Kool Smiles, we can make oral health services available to Medicaid-eligible and uninsured children in Prince George’s County and throughout the region; and reach out to kids just like Deamonte, ensuring that they will not be turned away from routine but potentially life-saving care.”

In response to the untimely death of Deamonte Driver in February 2007,[29] Governor O’Malley, Secretary Colmers and the General Assembly convened a Dental Action Committee in June 2007 to provide recommendations for Maryland to improve its oral health services. Based upon the Committee’s recommendations, Governor O’Malley put $14 million in the FY09 budget, in state and federal funds, to raise reimbursement rates for dentists treating Medicaid children. The funds target all preventative care and most diagnostic care rates. In addition, Governor O’Malley placed $2 million in his FY09 budget to the Office of Oral Health to initiate and expand dental services in underserved areas in the State.[30][31][32]

O'Malley was elected as the Vice Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association for 2009–2010 while Delaware Governor Jack Markell was chair, and on December 1, 2010, he was elected Chairman for 2010-2011.[33]

Since taking office O'Malley has adapted the CitiStat program he devised for Baltimore and applied it to the state of Maryland. This new program is called StateStat. O'Malley has said that President Obama has looked at StateStat as a potential model for tracking stimulus funding.[34][35]

In a debate during the 2010 campaign, O'Malley referred to illegal immigrants as "new Americans".[36] In May 2011, O'Malley signed a law that would give in-state tuition breaks to illegal immigrants at the state’s colleges and universities.[37] In response, Delegate Neil Parrott created an online petition to suspend the law and have it become a referendum in 2012.[38] The petition drive easily met the first deadline on June 1 with 47,379 signatures accepted by election officals.[39] One month later, the Maryland State Board of Elections verified enough signatures to suspend the law and force a referendum. It was the first time in 20 years that a petition drive has forced a vote on a Maryland law.[40]

O'Malley voiced his support for a bill considered by the General Assembly to legalize same-sex marriage in the state. O'Malley, a Catholic, was urged by Archbishop of Baltimore Edwin O'Brien not to support the bill in a private letter sent two days before O'Malley voiced his support.[41] "I am well aware that the recent events in New York have intensified pressure on you to lend your active support to legislation to redefine marriage," O’Brien wrote. "As advocates for the truths we are compelled to uphold, we speak with equal intensity and urgency in opposition to your promoting a goal that so deeply conflicts with your faith, not to mention the best interests of our society."[41] O'Malley responded, "I do not presume, nor would I ever presume as governor, to question or infringe upon your freedom to define, to preach about and to administer the sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church. But on the public issue of granting equal civil marital rights to same-sex couples, you and I disagree."[41]

O'Malley continues to ensure his Alma Matter, the state's university, the University of Maryland, College Park is funded in its endeavors. In early September 2011, Governor O'Malley guaranteed to make almost $48 million dollars of the total $63 million needed, apart of his projected budget that would be used to help fund the Edward St. John Teaching and Learning Center. [42]

2010 re-election campaign

On November 2, 2010, O'Malley defeated Ehrlich in an electoral rematch to win a second term. Despite major losses for Democrats nationwide, O'Malley defeated Ehrlich by a 14-point margin, more than doubling his 2006 margin of victory.

Personal life

O'Malley is the son of Tom and Barbara O'Malley. The late Tom O'Malley served as a Montgomery County based criminal defense lawyer, and an assistant U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia from 1957 to 1962, among many other positions. The elder O'Malley, a bombardier in the Army Air Forces in the Pacific theater during the Second World War, claimed to have seen the nuclear mushroom cloud rise over Hiroshima.[43]

O'Malley is married to state district judge Catherine Curran O'Malley (Katie). Martin and Katie first met in 1986 while he was working on Barbara Mikulski's primary and general election campaign for U.S. Senator from Maryland; while Katie was working on her father J. Joseph Curran, Jr.'s campaign for Attorney General of Maryland. They began to date in 1988 and were married in 1990 during his first campaign for political office.

They now live in the governor's mansion in Annapolis with their four children, Grace, Tara, Will and Jack. The O'Malleys' two daughters, Grace and Tara, currently attend college.

O'Malley's father-in-law, J. Joseph Curran, Jr., served as Attorney General of Maryland from 1987-2007. Citing his age and his long career, Curran decided not to seek reelection on May 7, 2006, preventing any conflict of interest that might arise in having two close family members at the position of Governor and Attorney General.[44]

In other media

According to David Simon, the creator of the HBO drama The Wire, the fictional Mayor of Baltimore Tommy Carcetti is "not O'Malley", but O'Malley was one of several inspirations.[45]

O'Malley appeared in the film Ladder 49 as himself, then-mayor of Baltimore. The History Channel's documentary First Invasion: The War of 1812 featured O'Malley in a segment regarding the British attack on Baltimore in 1814.

O'Malley is a musician. He was active in several bands and solo in the DC and Baltimore areas starting in the early 1980s. He was the vocalist/guitarist/songwriter of Celtic rock band, "O'Malley's March" from 1988 to 2005.[46]
