Josh White

Occupation

Manager of the gubernatorial campaign of Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley and his running mate, Del. Anthony G. Brown, a Prince George's County Democrat.

In the news

O'Malley named White last week to replace Jonathan Epstein as campaign manager. The high-profile shuffle, which opponents said signaled problems in the campaign, was by mutual agreement, according to Epstein, an Alabama native. O'Malley campaign officials said the mayor wanted a manager more versed in Maryland issues.

Career highlights

White, 38, had been executive director of the Maryland Democratic Party from July 2003 until December. He grew up in Westchester County, N.Y., and is a Hobart College graduate. He moved to Maryland in 1997 and worked for Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller. He also was a media and political consultant for various national, state and local races and was regional political director for the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee.

Personal

He and his wife of 15 years, Joyce, live in Annapolis with their two daughters, Caroline, 11, and Becca, 9.

Philosophy

"You win when you have the best candidate in the field." When he stepped down as executive director, he said: "I am still going to be working to put Democrats in office and take back Maryland."
