Tomorrow will be a busy day at the State House as newly elected public officials take their oaths of office. Amongst them is Anthony Brown, who becomes Maryland's first black Attorney General after serving in Congress, and as Lt. Governor.
Mr. Brown tells The Baltimore Sun that one of his priorities will be to fight to bolster salaries within his department to compete with the salaries federal agencies based in the state offer employees. Brown says this will help the state attract more talent to the AG's office. He also says that he supports state review of police cases rather than a problem to arise requiring the federal justice department's attention. Brown also addressed the increased traffic and congestion between the DC area and Baltimore and acknowledged that he is glad to have help with the driving as he'll be assigned a Trooper to get him from Prince George's County to Baltimore and Annapolis. He plans to use his commute in the passenger seat to answer emails, review documents, and make phone calls.
