ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Martin O’Malley today announced Teddy Davis as Director of Strategic Communications. Davis will work to keep the citizens of Maryland informed about state government and will help the O’Malley-Brown Administration communicate about its priorities.
“Teddy has a wealth of experience making real progress on issues that matter to middle class families,” said Governor O’Malley. “He will serve the people of Maryland well.”
“Governor O’Malley gets results even in the toughest of times,” Davis said. “I’m excited to be joining a team that is fighting for middle-class families.”
Davis has spent many years in the mid-Atlantic region. He graduated from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and from The Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law. He is admitted to the practice of law in the District of Columbia and is a member of the National Hispanic Bar Association.
Davis also has experience in state government: in the early part of his career, he was a Special Assistant to the governor of California. Most recently, he served as press secretary to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. He has also worked in various capacities with the SEIU, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of workers and their families. Understanding that a strong democracy depends on a strong press, Teddy spent seven years at ABC News, where he earned an Emmy Award.
Davis’ tenure in the O’Malley-Brown Administration will begin in mid-February.
