O'Malley's resume

This discussion thread is pinned.
For people unaware of O'Malley, here's his resume:

http://msa.maryland.gov/msa/mdmanual/08conoff/gov/former/html/msa13090.html

The bottom quarter is good reading on O'Malley's positions and what he accomplished in Maryland.
A former Governing Magazine “Public Official of the Year,” Governor O’Malley was re-elected in 2010. His 2013 legislative successes were described in a Baltimore Sun editorial as “without many parallels in recent Maryland history.”

With a balanced approach of spending cuts, regulatory reform, and modern investment in education, innovation, and infrastructure, Governor O’Malley and his Administration are making better choices that are delivering better results, including:

Fastest rate of job growth in the region.
#1 ranking for best public schools in America for an unprecedented five years in a row (Education Week).
#1 ranking for holding down the cost of college tuition (College Board).
#1 ranking for innovation and entrepreneurship for two years running (U.S. Chamber of Commerce).

Under the Governor’s leadership, Maryland also ranks:

#1 nationally in median income,
#1 in Ph.D. scientists and researchers per capita,
#1 in Research and Development, and
#1 in businesses owned by women.


Called “arguably the best manager in government” by Washington Monthly magazine, Governor O’Malley has cut State spending more than any previous governor in Maryland’s history, balancing these record cuts with targeted, modern investments in priorities like public education. He has reduced the size of government to its smallest size since 1973 (on a per capita basis) and reformed how it is managed, so that it works more efficiently and accountably. His actions to save Maryland’s State pension system have made it sustainable over the long term. His fiscal stewardship has nearly eliminated Maryland’s structural deficit. His efforts to streamline, consolidate and digitize processes like business licensing are making Maryland a better place to do business.



PS, part of a public informational archive and not bound by copyright.

The O’Malley-Brown Administration has expanded health care to more than 380,000 previously uninsured Marylanders. It has reduced infant mortality to an historic low, and provided meals to thousands of hungry children as it moves forward toward its goal for eradicating childhood hunger.

The Governor’s policies have made strides in restoring the health of the Chesapeake Bay and saving the Bay’s native blue crab and oyster populations.

The O’Malley Administration has secured millions of dollars in rate relief for Maryland energy consumers while jump-starting the creation of thousands of green energy sector jobs. Under Governor O’Malley’s leadership, Maryland led the charge for the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), the nation’s first cap-and-trade auction of greenhouse emissions.

Governor O’Malley has cut income taxes for 86% of Marylanders and reformed Maryland’s tax code to make it more progressive. In addition, he signed the nation’s first statewide living wage law, along with some of the nation’s most comprehensive reforms to protect homeowners from foreclosure.

Declaring that Marylanders are bound together by “the common thread of human dignity,” Governor O’Malley signed legislation to protect individual civil marriage rights and religious freedom, along with legislation to protect voting rights. He signed – and successfully defended at the ballot box – the DREAM Act, which expands the opportunity of a college education to more Marylanders.

1. "The Milken Institute"? As in *Michael* Milken?

 

>>>The Milken Institute ranks Maryland as one of the top two states in America for science and technology.>>>

Are you SURE you want to lead w. that?


Good god.

2. Since that quote doesn't appear in my post, it is hard to see how "I lead with that"?

AAR, Milken has been involved in much good charity work since serving his time. Hard to see the praise of an independent non-partisan think tank as problem.

3. Milken may have been involved in god charity work

 

But then again, so are the Koch Brothers.
And ALL these think-tanks claim to be independent and non-partisan. When you look at who is on their boards, you can see which way they lean.

4. True, the Milken Institute is a pro-business group and yet they are saying that

O'Malley's Liberal Policies were great for the business climate in Maryland.

6. Allow me

People love to come into other group forums and piss all over it
But God help you if you go into theirs and even hint there is something wrong with their candidate

Good luck. Hope you make it to some of his rallies
I think he's a good candidate and would make an excellent president

8. Yeah, we know. O'Malley's numbers have been low, so this gorup has been immune to

much notice. When he starts to rise in the polls we expect more of those type of posts.

9. Yeah. It's extremely depressing to see people jump in like this and

feel they have to trash every other group
I am glad there is starting to be some push back from people at DU
Someone started a thread about Clinton that was negative and a Sanders supporter jumped in and tried to encourage people to tell why we should support Sanders and not trash the other candidates
