Martin O’Malley coming to Dare County
On Thursday, Sept. 22, former Gov. Martin O’Malley will be in Dare County to support the local Democratic Party candidates, as well as the rest of the Democratic slate for the 2016 General Election.
Most recent in his political career, O’Malley ran in the Democratic Primary seeking the nomination to run for president. He dropped out of the race after coming in third in the Iowa caucus.
Previous to that bid, he served as governor of Maryland, mayor of Baltimore, and as a Baltimore city councilor, each of which he served eight years.
While governor, he signed laws making illegal immigrants who were brought to this country as children eligible for in-state college tuition and legalized same sex marriage in that state. Each of those laws were the results of voter referendums which were upheld by a majority of the voting public.
The event will be held Thursday, Sept. 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Basnight’s Lone Cedar Cafe on Nags Head Causeway and includes a light lunch. All are invited.
