O'Malley To Nominate Cryor as Democratic Chairman

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) will nominate Michael Cryor, a communications consultant based in Baltimore, as the next chairman of the state Democratic party, according to people familiar with the pick.

Cryor, 60, would succeed Terry Lierman, who is leaving to become chief of staff to U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.)

Cryor is a long-time adviser to O'Malley who helped orchestrate the "Baltimore Believe" campaign when O'Malley was mayor of Baltimore. The campaign was aimed at engaging all sectors of the community in combatting the city's drug epidemic.

He also served as a consultant to the city's school board and is president of the Cryor Group, which has advised numerous private-sector clients in the areas of health care, technology and public policy affecting American urban centers.

If Mr. Cryor does as good a job for the Democratic Party as he did in helping rid Baltimore of illegal drugs, O'Malley is a one-termer.

End Drugs,
Is that you out there Bob Ehrlich posting 3X??? What city has ever gotten "rid" of drugs. The Believe Campaign has been a good thing for Baltimore and its citizens -- was it a failure for not getting rid of drugs? That's not the measure unless you just want to place a partisan, negative post.

Why do you think a drugs discussion must be partisan? What progress did Cryor et. al. make in getting rid of illegal drugs in Baltimore? Be specific. Cite statistics.
