Mayor Brandon Scott has named Jim Shea, his former running mate in the 2018 gubernatorial race, to be Baltimore City’s top lawyer, while former Acting City Solicitor Dana P. Moore has been named the city’s first Chief Equity Officer.
Shea, chairman emeritus of Venable LLP, the state’s largest law firm, previously served as managing partner and chair of the firm from 1995 to 2017, shortly before his gubernatorial run.
In a statement, Scott cited Shea’s legal and civic experience throughout the state.
“His dedication to good lawyering, equity and accountability will make him an effective city solicitor and critical part of my team as we work to build a better city,” the Democrat said.
