I am Martin O’Malley, Governor of Maryland - Ask Me Anything.
Hello Reddit, I’m Martin O’Malley, former mayor of Baltimore and current Governor of the great state of Maryland, where we’ve passed marriage equality, passed the Maryland DREAM Act, enacted tougher gun laws, held down the cost of college tuition, and driven down violent crime.
Right after this AMA, I’ll be signing new laws to raise the minimum wage and expand opportunity for our middle class families.
I’ll start answering your questions at about 9 am EST.
UPDATE: I'm here.
UPDATE: Thank you, Reddit...this was fun! I'm sorry I didn't get to do more, I'll try to answer more questions later. Right now, I'm going to sign some bills, including one to raise Maryland's minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.
1:12 pm EST: I'm back to answer some more questions. I got through as many questions as I could on the first round, and I think some of them got buried in the voting process.
2:15 pm EST: I answered a bunch more, but I have to go. I'm not sure if I'll be able to answer more later this afternoon, but I'll try if I can. Thanks again.
4:45 pm EST: I'm going to try to answer a few more questions.
5:32 pm EST: Thanks for all the questions and engagement today. I tried to answer as many questions as I could during my first AMA! Once again, I signed a bill today to increase Maryland's minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. I urge you to call on Congress to take similar action at the national level. Whether you agree or disagree with my answers today...I hope you'll stay or get engaged in the democratic process. We need everyone's voices to be heard.
