Gov. Martin O’Malley now must replace two open cabinet positions.
Alexander M. Sanchez, secretary of the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation since 2009, will become Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s chief of staff on June 16. Sanchez follows the departure of transportation secretary Beverley K. Swaim-Staley, who announced her resignation last week.
