Martin O'Malley is a consumate visionary; I'm voting for him

To the Daily Sun,

One has only to look at Martin O'Malley's accomplishments as a Baltimore councilman and mayor and as Maryland's governor to trace out the effectiveness of his approach to governing.

Both as mayor and governor, he brought diverse stakeholders together, pushed creative problem solving, instituted data gathering and analysis, and required evidence based assessment and reflection of solutions.

O'Malley is a good manager.

To govern well, you've got to do more than merely manage well. You need challenge yourself and others with an inclusionary vision. O'Malley, both when governing Baltimore and Maryland, recognized and articulated a vision of how safety, infrastructure, health care, and human equality are essentials for creating a truly vibrant economy that lifts all boats.

O'Malley is a consummate visionary.

Lastly, effective governing is not simply touting an ideology, ruminating over policy options, or critiquing what's not working, but is the daily grind of putting forth the effort of imagining what can be and executing those activities that get you there. You need to be practical and persistent. For 16 years O'Malley has provided the executive focus, energy, and tenacity required to create effect positive change.

O'Malley is a pragmatic leader.

Join me in voting this February for Martin O'Malley.
