The man who had the mayor’s back
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.
