DescriptionGov.-elect Martin O'Malley has received national praise for transforming City Hall into a more efficient, businesslike operation -- primarily through a statistics-driven approach spearheaded by the CitiStat agency he created.

But when O'Malley is sworn into office in January in Annapolis, many of Baltimore's brightest are likely to shift into the nearly 7,000 state jobs he will control -- a brain drain that has played out before in Maryland politics.

A job in the new O'Malley administration is guaranteed for four years. Staying to serve Council President Sheila Dixon as she finishes the mayor's 11 months is less secure because she must campaign to keep the job in 2007.
