Per the State of Maryland: Governor Wes Moore this evening unveiled the official portraits of Governor Martin O’Malley and First Lady Judge Catherine O’Malley during a celebration hosted at Government House.
“Through his faith, through his tenacity, through his charisma and good humor and decency, Martin O’Malley left our state better than he found it,” said Gov. Moore. “Today, we unveil two portraits of two extraordinary leaders. And so it fills me with great pride to share these words with both of you: Martin and Katie—welcome home.”
Martin O’Malley served as the 61st governor of the State of Maryland. Prior to being elected in 2006 and serving two terms from 2007-2015, he was appointed as Assistant State’s Attorney for the City of Baltimore in 1988; served on the Baltimore City Council from 1991-1999; and served as Mayor of the City of Baltimore from 1999-2007.
As governor, O’Malley supported legislation to legalize same-sex marriage in Maryland, ultimately signing the bill into law in March 2012. A longtime opponent of capital punishment, O’Malley led the initiative to repeal it for all future offenders, which was enacted in 2013. O’Malley was also appointed to the nation’s first-ever Council of Governors by President Obama in 2010 and was named co-chair of the Council in 2013.
First Lady Judge Catherine O’Malley was appointed as Assistant State’s Attorney in the Baltimore County District Court, where she served for ten years. In 2001, Judge O’Malley was appointed as Associate Judge of the District Court of Maryland, from which she retired in 2021. She now serves the District Court of Maryland as a senior judge.
The portraits represent a celebration of Governor and Judge O’Malley tenure and are a testament to their dedicated service to Maryland. The governor’s portrait will hang in the Governor’s Reception Room in the State House and the first lady’s portrait will hang in Government House.
