O’Malley sends anti-hunger message to G8

THURMONT — Gov. Martin O’Malley is joining a campaign for world hunger relief aimed at the Group of Eight economic summit at Camp David.

The Democratic governor sent a tweet that is among hundreds of short messages the Washington-based group One spray-painted Wednesday on state Route 77 near Thurmont. The presidential retreat is located inside nearby Catoctin Mountain Park.

O’Malley’s message reads: “Together, let’s end hunger.”

An O’Malley spokeswoman says the governor joined the campaign because he has set a goal of ending childhood hunger in Maryland by 2015.

Officials of the eight leading industrialized nations are meeting at Camp David Friday and Saturday.

A spokeswoman for One says the orange paint is washable, so the group is hoping thunderstorms avoid the area.

  1. world hunger is surely an issue for any and all decent people but O’Malley needs to focus on the hungry in Maryland. There are many children here and throuhout our country that go to bed hungry and should be taken care of first.

    We should all remember “charity begins at home.”

  2. he is. did you not see, “An O’Malley spokeswoman says the governor joined the campaign because he has set a goal of ending childhood hunger in Maryland by 2015.”

    Before typing uninformed comments like that, why not read the governor’s webpage where he outlines the steps his administration is taking to help end childhood hunger in MARYLAND.
