O'Malley Coming To A City Near You
With his band on hiatus, this may be the closest Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) gets to announcing a tour anytime soon.
O'Malley today unveiled the 2008 lineup for his administration's "Capital for a Day" series, during which a retinue of Cabinet secretaries and aides descend on a jurisdiction for several meetings and public events. Three cities -- Salisbury, La Plata and Bel Air -- were treated to the distinction last year, generating a good deal of local media coverage.
With flags from municipalities from around Maryland flapping in the background, O'Malley teased eight more planned stops, saying during a news conference that he and administration officials would be "coming to a municipality near you."
"We hope to remind our citizens that our progress comes from every corner of our state," O'Malley said.
The lineup: Hagerstown in May; Chestertown in June; Leonardtown in July; Pocomoke City in August; the Port Towns of Prince George's County (Cottage City, Edmonston, Colmar Manor and Bladensburg) in September; Cumberland in October; Gaithersburg in November; and Ellicott City in December.
The announcement comes in the wake of the 90-day legislative session and last fall's special session, which kept O'Malley tethered to Annapolis much of the time.
