Gov. Martin O'Malley announced Friday that he has hired the press spokesman for Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to be his new director of strategic communications.
Teddy Davis, who formerly covered politics for ABC News, will join O'Malley's press staff in mid-February, the governor's office announced.
Davis becomes the second hire in the governor's communications operation since the departure of longtime aide Rick Abbruzzese late last year. In early January, Stephen Neuman, a former aide to Democratic governors, came on board as public affairs director.
Davis is a graduate of Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and The Catholic University's law school.
