Top O’Malley aide Bryce leaving for Annapolis lobbying firm
Gov. Martin O’Malley’s top legislative aide is leaving for a private lobbying job. Joseph C. Bryce, who worked to garner the General Assembly’s support for a number of divisive issues and was instrumental in securing votes in the House of Delegates for legislation that could expand gambling in Maryland, announced Friday that he will join Annapolis-based Manis Canning & Associates. He’ll be replaced by Stacy A. Mayer, O’Malley’s deputy legislative officer.
