Top Aide To O’Malley Leaving For Lobbying Firm

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A long-time aide to Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is leaving to take a position with a Maryland lobbying firm.

The departure of Rick Abbruzzese is the second high-profile departure for O’Malley in a month. Chief lobbyist Joseph C. Bryce recently left to join an Annapolis lobbying firm.

Abbruzzese is joining the lobbying firm of Rifkin, Livingston, Levitan and Silver, joining Josh White, who managed governor’s 2006 gubernatorial campaign.

Abbruzzese first worked with O’Malley in 2003. He has been deputy press secretary, press secretary, deputy campaign manager and communications director.
