Jacqueline F. Brown, the Howard County school system's director of academic reform, has resigned from her position to become chief administrative officer in Prince George's County under its newly elected county executive, Jack B. Johnson. "She's going to help me manage the county," Johnson said yesterday. "We are going to focus on the quality of life and raising the standards. ... She'll be the person responsible for making that happen." Johnson said Brown's background in education administration gave her the kind of management skills he was looking for.

Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold appointed veteran county budget officer John R. Hammond as chief administrative officer Wednesday. Hammond will take the position formerly held by Dennis M. Callahan, who died Feb. 8 of a heart attack. Hammond has worked for the county government for 18 years, joining the county's finance office in 1993 and later becoming budget officer. Leopold said he briefly considered other candidates within county government but selected Hammond, whom he called the "obvious and logical choice," because of his experience.

As Annapolis mayor in the 1980s, Dennis M. Callahan was so peeved that a volunteer coach with the city's recreation program had been charged with a drug offense that he canceled the entire athletic season, a decision met with fury by some. Under pressure, he didn't back down, and ultimately required anyone in the city working with children to undergo a background check. It was quintessential Callahan, say those who knew him. "A lot of politicians take polls," said House Speaker Michael E. Busch Monday at a memorial service for Callahan.

Leopold has shifted Dennis Callahan to the chief administrative officer post and is doing away with the chief of staff position as a cost-cutting measure.

Robey, her boss for most of the past seven years. "She can be tough as nails." Sanudo is Howard's chief administrative officer and has been for 14 years under Robey, a Democrat, and Charles I. Ecker, a Republican. When the executive is away, the County Charter makes her acting executive. At other times, she supervises County Council legislation, the county budget, personnel, purchasing, insurance and bond sales.
