ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Democratic Chairman Peter O’Malley is leaving the post to be Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s chief of staff.

The mayor announced the appointment on Thursday.

Peter O’Malley, who is Gov. Martin O’Malley’s brother, was chosen to be the party chairman two months ago. That job is an unpaid and volunteer position.

The mayor’s office says he will begin his new job on Friday.

Peter O’Malley served as former Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith’s chief of staff. He also worked on his brother’s successful Baltimore mayoral races in 1999 and 2003, as well as his gubernatorial victories in 2006 and 2010.

Peter O’Malley is a Baltimore resident. He worked as a special assistant for CitiStat, a government accountability tool in the mayor’s office, from late 2000 to 2002.
