Imagine being elected mayor of a city declared one of America’s most violent and dysfunctional, with drug markets, criminal gangs, and murder rates all out of control.
That was the leadership challenge Martin O’Malley faced when he became mayor of Baltimore.
He knew the task at hand would require more than sheer determination.
It would also require entrepreneurial guile backed by leading-edge tech to map, solve – and even predict – problems. He’d need to show the electorate – and the criminals – he meant business.
Martin O’Malley was so successful in his technology-led approach that he went on to become the Governor of Maryland in the United States from 2007 to 2015 and even a democratic contender for the Presidential nomination.
He’s tackled many complex leadership issues in his political career, from being the first US leader to pass the marriage equality act to devising gun safety legislation.
