The man who had the mayor’s back

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Ray­mond D. Bahr, Bal­ti­more

Thanks for Stephen H. Sachs’ and Shale D. Stiller’s com­men­tary on Bal­ti­more City So­lic­i­tor Ge­orge A. Nil­son’s ac­com­plish­ments be­fore he was fired by Mayor Stephanie Rawl­ings-Blake (“Bal­ti­more so­lic­i­tor was too good for un­jus­ti­fied fir­ing,” Aug. 26).

The de­ci­sion sur­prised many of us be­cause Mr. Nil­son al­ways had Mayor Rawl­ingsBlake’s back. Count the num­ber of 3-2 de­ci­sions from the Board of Es­ti­mates in which he demon­strated his loy­alty.

We may never learned how this hap­pened, but I can­not wait for Mr. Nil­son to write a book ex­plain­ing all that went on be­hind the scenes dur­ing those years of closed-door lead­er­ship. I ex­pect it will be a best-seller from day one.
