"The cuts are part of Howard County Executive Ken UlmanÂ’s push to handle anticipated state budget cuts and declining revenue. The consolidation is expected to save Howard $500,000 a year, he said."

Must be nice to get a 7% raise like Ken Ulman did last week, in this recession. This is completely inappropriate. Just ask the county employees and their families he laid off to "save money", only to see his increased spending and pay raises for the remainder of employees. Have you had your 7% raise recently??

Ken Ulman said he is donating it to charity. Just like Sheila Dixon did a day after she said she deserved her raise. He will do no such thing. They both don't want to look bad in the midst of a recession.
