Walsh taps colleague
Martin W. Walsh Jr., who was moved last year from his post as Maryland's environmental chief to the nuts-and-bolts job as state secretary of general services, has tapped a fellow retired Army officer to serve as one of his four assistants.
Carl A. Damico, 56, a retired U.S. Army Corps of Engineers construction chief who supervised federal projects worldwide, has been named assistant secretary for facilities management. Mr. Damico will oversee the state's capital construction projects as well as the operation and maintenance of state buildings and properties.
Mr. Damico worked together with Mr. Walsh, a former U.S. Army officer, in the Army corps' Baltimore district office. He succeeds Eric S. Walbeck, who retired at the end of last year.
