Frank, the deputy mayor for economic and neighborhood development, said he will leave City Hall in May to take a job with the Johns Hopkins University. "It was one of the most difficult decisions I've ever made and made even more difficult because of my admiration and respect for Mayor Rawlings-Blake," he said.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's office said Friday she has replaced her chief of staff Alexander M. Sanchez with her longtime friend and colleague Kaliope Parthemos, the deputy mayor for economic development since 2010. "It was a mutual agreement that it was time to go in a different direction," Rawlings-Blake's spokesman Kevin Harris said. The replacement is effective immediately, Harris said. Sanchez called his time as chief of staff "an honor. " "I am extremely proud of all that we were able to accomplish over the past two years: securing more than a billion dollars for schools, making an unprecedented investment in rebuilding vacant properties, and closing a $750 million deficit by developing and implementing the City's first ever 10-year plan, to name a few," he said in an email.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has said she intends to restart the system, which was once North America's largest, this year.

Members of Baltimore's fire and police pension board are questioning whether one of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's top aides should remain part of the lucrative pension system that covers sworn public safety officers. Administration officials say Robert M. Maloney — a career firefighter — has worn multiple hats within city government since becoming a deputy to the mayor in August. He is a sworn paramedic who responds to emergency calls, they say, while as a mayoral aide, he monitors agencies including the Health Department and the Mayor's Office of Information Technology.

Schwartz, Baltimore's deputy mayor for economic and neighborhood development, is leaving her post to take charge of day-to-day operations for the much-heralded east-side revitalization effort centered around a biotechnology park.

Mayor Martin O'Malley's top executive met with Comptroller Joan M. Pratt yesterday to hash out how the two elected officials' staffs can work together to improve audits of city agencies. The two sides agreed that the administration should be pushing city agencies to fully cooperate with Pratt's auditors to root out inefficiencies. But Pratt and city auditor Yovonda Brooks expressed continuing concern with an administration policy to counter audits. "The Administration's proposal will hinder the audit process by impairing the integrity of the report response and creating delays in the completion of the audit," Pratt and Brooks wrote in a letter to First Deputy Mayor Michael R. Enright after their meeting with him. The meeting was prompted by Enright's Aug. 4 e-mail directive to all department heads asking to be fully informed of Brooks' audits.

NEW YORK - Driving along New York's West Side Highway in the darkness, Daniel L. Doctoroff sees things others might not. His car glides by vacant lots, rusting rail yards and a moonscape of auto shops - but what he describes is spellbinding. "This big space over here, that's going to be a stadium," he says, barely controlling his enthusiasm. "And that lot over there, which you can hardly see now, is going to be a public park. This will be the biggest project we've seen here in many years."

The city's lawyer has filed paperwork to block a former deputy mayor and the administration's technology chief from answering questions in a lawsuit over a proposed overhaul of the municipal telephone system. City Solicitor George Nilson is asking a judge for a protective order to prevent former Deputy Mayor Christopher Thomaskutty and current Chief Information Officer Chris Tonjes from answering questions from a lawyer for Baltimore Comptroller Joan M. Pratt.

The purchase of Voice over Internet Protocol telephones and related equipment by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's administration may not have been illegal. That's the kindest conclusion one can draw from a report on the matter by the city's inspector general, David N. McClintock, which otherwise notes that the process was inefficient and rife with possible conflicts of interest and deception. But it is to that slender reed of vindication that Ms. Rawlings-Blake is clinging as she continues to avoid taking real responsibility for the mess and fails to provide a path forward to responsibly handle a needed upgrade of the city's communications technology.

The former police chief of Boston, New York and Los Angeles says Baltimore's next commissioner must be on the same page with the mayor, and he thinks an outsider can provide a fresh perspective under the right circumstances. William J. Bratton, perhaps the most well-known name in policing, said in an interview that there should be no shortage of candidates to become Baltimore's next commissioner, but that he knows some who considered applying and opted to stay away. He declined to name them.

Appearing relaxed while trying to quell talk of a hidden motive behind his decision to resign in three months, the city's blunt-spoken police commissioner did at least concede Friday that he was pushed out of the job. "Look, I was absolutely influenced in this decision," Frederick H. Bealefeld III said. But it wasn't by city officials or a as-yet-undisclosed issue. It was his wife, Linda, and 16-year-old daughter, Erica. Said Bealefeld, his eyes tearing, "They're ready for me to come home.
