Martin O'Malley (Exclusively WSB)

Through the stories, wisdom, talents and commitment of others, Governor Martin O’Malley learned to forge a new way of governing as both mayor of Baltimore and governor of Maryland. O’Malley understands that leadership has changed from top-level hierarchy to the center of a collaborative circle, and that the public now often learns information just as fast – if not prior – to leaders today. Enabled by new technologies such as geographic information systems, common platforms and the Internet, O’Malley successfully recaptured the trust of the citizens of Baltimore and subsequently the state of Maryland. One of his first actions as governor was to implement the same CitiStat system he used to manage Baltimore. CitiStat received the “Innovations in Government” award by Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. This new way of governing has now spread to cities and towns all across the United States and is a model for improving the quality of life shared by all and a promise of a more effective way of governing at every level of our government—local, state and federal.
