O’Malley Moves Ahead in Confirmation Process

November 30th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Former Maryland Governor Maritin O’Malley is one step closer to becoming the next Social Security Commissioner.  U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, a member of the Senate Finance Committee, which has direct oversight for the Social Security Administration, joined his colleagues in approving O’Malley’s nomination. Cardin said O’Malley showed his strengths as a public servant and data-driven manager at his confirmation hearing. The SSA has roughly 60,000 employees nationwide across almost 1,400 offices. During his confirmation hearings, O’Malley observed that the Social Security Administration is serving 50% more customers and beneficiaries on the same staffing it had 20 years ago in 1995.
