Wiki

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.

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 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.

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 at small fundraisers and other events.
