Pugh Attorney to make announcement Thursday on Mayor's political future
Mayor Catherine Pugh's personal attorney Steve Silverman, told reporters late Wednesday afternoon there will be a news conference Thursday afternoon at his downtown office.
Silverman told reporters to consider not being at the Mayor's home in the Ashburton community in Northwest Baltimore, saying there would be no purpose to it and nothing is going to happen there. "I just met with the mayor. "I intend to schedule a press conference tomorrow afternoon. At that time I will be in a position to tell you what her intentions are moving forward." Silverman met with the Mayor inside her home for about an hour Wednesday afternoon. So it appears that decision has been made about the political future of Mayor Catherine Pugh. We will have to wait until Thursday to learn what it is. Pugh has been on a medical leave of absence from office for 30 days to recover from pneumonia and bronchitis as State and Federal investigators dig into her Healthy Holly book deals. The city council, Governor Hogan and host of other lawmakers have called on Mayor Pugh to resign. Some donors have even asked for refunds of their contributions to Pugh's re-election campaign.
