O'Malley spokesman departing

Shaun Adamec, a spokesman for Gov. Martin O'Malley for the past three years, is resigning at the end of the month to take a position working for a nonprofit in Boston.

In a letter to O'Malley, Adamec wrote: "The words thank you do not begin to express my gratitude for the opportunities you’ve afforded me." He told the governor he is leaving in part to be closer to his extended family in New England.

On Twitter he wrote that being press secretary has been the "the honor of my life" and now it is "ready to g home."

Adamec will be working as Vice President of Communications for City Year, an organization that places volunteers in distressed cities.

He started working for O'Malley in May 2008. Before working in O'Malley's press shop, Adamec was a spokesman for Stephanie Rawlings-Blake who was then the president of Baltimore's city council.

The news of his departure was first reported by the Washington Post's Maryland Politics blog.
