Former Howard County Executive Ken Ulman is our pick for best week in Maryland, while the Maryland State Police had the worst week.
Less than two months after losing his bid for lieutenant governor, Ulman turned around and announced he had snagged a sweet deal in the private sector. The University of Maryland Foundation announced Monday it had hired Ulman as an economic development consultant.
The contract with Ulman’s newly formed company, Margrave Strategies LLC, is worth up to $250,000 and lasts for three years.
Maryland State Police, however, is on the hook for more than double that amount, after a Baltimore County Circuit Court judge ruled the police owe attorneys’ fees to the NAACP.
The fees, which total nearly $590,000, are to be paid to lawyers who represented the NAACP in its seven-year quest to receive police records of traffic stops.
