State GOP Pans New O'Malley's March Release
The Maryland Republican Party took a somewhat predictable swing today at Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) for striking up his band as the state's revenue collections deteriorate.
The Post reported today that the governor is releasing the fifth O'Malley's March album at a pair of concerts in Baltimore on Saturday.
This afternoon, a state panel will release significantly lower revenue projections for this year and next, prompting another round of at least $500 million in budget cuts. O'Malley said yesterday that he hoped to avoid layoffs of state workers but would not rule out the prospect.
In a news release, GOP Chairman James Pelura noted the timing: "Maybe Martin O'Malley should have been spending more time working to really streamline Maryland's government and relieve the burden on working families and less time recording his latest 'O'Malley's March' album."
The party's executive director suggested that O'Malley donate proceeds of the CD release party -- tickets are $25 apiece -- to help state workers keep their jobs.
O'Malley's March has played only sporadically since O'Malley became governor in 2007. The CD was recorded over the course of two years, according to O'Malley.
Here are three tracks from the album:
So Do I
Dirty Old Town
