Governor O’Malley visits Mason

The Communication Industry Forum was a smashing success on Tuesday. Students listened to a variety of speakers, including former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, extoll the power of political communication. O’Malley spoke eloquently about the power of stories to instill belief and hope in a population, and rather than discuss the presidential campaign, he spoke about his time as mayor of Baltimore. In particular, he pointed to the controversial “Believe” campaign as evidence for the importance of communication. Here he is addressing students. As per usual, it is refreshing when “practitioners” of political communication can join in the dialogue happening at our universities.
