BALTIMORE, MD (September 28, 2017) – Today, Dennis Schrader, the acting Maryland Health Secretary, was held in contempt of court. In response, Jim Shea released the following statement:
“Dennis Schrader is unqualified for the job and he should resign. This is what happens when Larry Hogan appoints a woefully unqualified person to run a billiondollar agency responsible for public health, and it brings back memories of when Governor Ehrlich appointed an ice skater to run the Port. Larry Hogan, who served as Governor Ehrlich’s Secretary of Appointments, should have known better.”
Jim Shea is the former Chair of Venable LLP, the largest law firm in the state of Maryland. He is also the former Chair of the Board of Regents of the University System of Maryland, the Empower Baltimore Management Corporation, and the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore. He has served on the boards of the Greater Baltimore Committee and the Equal Justice Council.
