Annapolis Mayor Mike Pantelides is filling two of the key vacant posts at City Hall: city manager and city attorney. Pantelides has nominated Thomas C. Andrews as city manager and Michael G. Leahy as city attorney. The Annapolis city council must confirm the appointments, which will officially be introduced at the council's meeting Monday. The mayor briefed the aldermen on the nominations during a closed-door meeting Thursday.

A veteran Annapolis official will be named to the city's No. 2 post Thursday, as his successor prepares to step down. Mayor Joshua J. Cohen is expected to announce at a Thursday afternoon news conference that Michael D. Mallinoff, the director of the Department of Neighborhood and Environmental Programs, will be the new city manager, according to government sources. Mallinoff was city administrator for about six years ending in 1995, though the position was recently renamed "city manager" as the Annapolis city council tweaked its government structure in response to dissatisfaction over the job performance of the departing administrator, Douglas E Smith.

There certainly seems to be a measure of risk involved in the announcement that Niles Ford has been named the new Baltimore City fire chief ( "Rawlings-Blake picks former Nebraska fire chief to lead Baltimore's department," Dec. 28). This selection will certainly not sit well with some, as two candidates with the Baltimore City Fire Department were overlooked for the position. Mr. Ford's last employment as city manager in Chamblee, Ga., ended in a very inauspicious manner. There are many questions regarding his capability to lead a department as large as the one here.
