Biography

Douglas F. Gansler was elected to a second term as the Attorney General of Maryland on November 2nd, 2010. In that election, he was the only statewide candidate in the nation to run unopposed in both the primary and general elections. He credits that enviable position, and the 1.3 million votes he received, to the fine work of the entire staff at the Maryland Office of the Attorney General.
Since taking office in 2006, Attorney General Gansler has focused on environmental, consumer, and public safety issues. He has distinguished himself by prosecuting polluters of the Chesapeake Bay, protecting consumers from various forms of fraud, and safeguarding the public from gangs, violent crime, and the underbelly of the Internet. Attorney General Gansler is also President of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG). He served as Chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) until becoming President-Elect at the national organization. He also has chaired NAAG committees on Youth Access to Alcohol, the Environment and Energy.
