InfoCalled America's best young mayor by Esquire magazine, Martin O'Malley has led Baltimore City's renewal, working tirelessly to make it a safer and cleaner city, a city where businesses want to invest, and a city that is a better place for children.

Martin O'Malley believes the foundation of Baltimore's comeback begins with public safety and a commitment to making every neighborhood an even safer place to call home. Under Mayor O'Malley's leadership and through the hard work of police and neighbors, Baltimore is leading the nation in the rate of reduction of violent crime. And, at the same time, Baltimore is freeing its communities of drug use with new substance abuse facilities and improved drug treatment funding.

Martin O'Malley is moving Baltimore government from patronage politics to performance politics through the use of his nationally acclaimed CitiStat program. With a dedication to open and transparent government and a belief that what gets watched gets done, O'Malley is tracking performance on a scale unprecedented in local government. Syndicated columnist Neal Peirce, of the Washington Post Writers Group, says Citistat "may represent the most significant local government management innovation of this decade" and the Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation and the Council for Excellence in Government at Harvard University have also recognized this innovative performance management model -- Baltimore's CitiStat program won this year's "Innovations in Government" award.

Martin O'Malley promotes an economic development strategy focused on building from the city's strengths; focused on investing in all of Baltimore's people; focused on improving the quality of life for the people who live and work in the City. He firmly believes that economic and community development must go hand in hand.

Since the first day in office, the O'Malley's long-term strategy for Baltimore has been growth. Today, Baltimore is closer to turning that corner than it's been since 1950. The Census Bureau just reported that Baltimore's population loss has essentially ended. And the City's Planning Department projects that, within a few years, Baltimore will begin to grow again - based on facts like building permits, occupancy certificates and thousands of vacant houses becoming homes, again. There is currently $6 billion in new development happening in Baltimore, bringing jobs and people - after a decade with little growth. You can see the signs throughout the city, downtown and in the neighborhoods - the scaffolding, cranes and bulldozers that illustrate new investment. And as a result of big and small improvements, average home sale values have gone from $69,000 in 1999 to setting a record of $155,000 this past August.

Martin O'Malley believes the real measure of our progress as a people is the achievement of our children. For the first time in a generation, schools in Baltimore are showing significant improvement. Our first and second grade students are scoring above the national average in reading and math for the first time in 30 years. Students in all grades are improving faster than the state average on the Maryland School Assessment tests. Experts report that no urban system is progressing as quickly as Baltimore's schools on standardized tests.

Martin O'Malley is an attorney. He received his B.A. from the Catholic University of America and his law degree from the University of Maryland.

O'Malley familyHe served as an Assistant State's Attorney for the City of Baltimore from 1988 to 1990. In 1991 he was elected to the City Council representing the 3rd District. He served as Chairman of the Legislative Investigations Committee and Chairman of the Taxation and Finance Committee.

He and his wife, Catherine Curran O'Malley, live in Northeast Baltimore with their daughters, Grace and Tara, and sons William and Jack. They are members of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church.
