The state's new economic development chief has seen the haves and have-nots of Maryland, having worked in that capacity in both Allegany and Montgomery counties. That's why David W. Edgerley is the right person for the job, say state officials and business leaders. "He's a true economic development professional," said Donald C. Fry, president of the Greater Baltimore Committee, which represents regional business and civic leaders. Gov. Martin O'Malley announced Edgerley's appointment as secretary of the Department of Business and Economic Development yesterday in Annapolis.

Avesta Sheffield East Inc., the Essex stainless steel mill that shut down after it received a $1.1 million economic development grant from the state, has agreed to pay back $600,000 of the money, Maryland's economic development department said yesterday.The settlement came after a yearlong dispute in which Maryland officials accused Avesta of breaking a promise to add jobs. Avesta blamed a weak steel market, saying the employment target was a nonbinding goal.Maryland's Department of Business and Economic Development took the unusual step late last year of seeking to recover the money through a lawsuit filed in Baltimore County Circuit Court.

ANNAPOLIS -- Maryland's development office in Hong Kong survived yesterday the first, albeit preliminary, budget action by lawmakers addressing the state's economic-development policy.A subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee ignored budget analysts' recommendations and decided not to cut the $488,833 in fiscal 1992 funding for the office, which promotes trade with Maryland for the International Division of the state Department of Economic and Employment Development.In a hearing before the panel last week, department Secretary J. Randall Evans said Maryland exported about $490 million worth of goods to Asia last year, much of it as a result of the staff in the Hong Kong office.

It's as plain as the steely resolve in Gov. Martin O'Malley's eyes that something interesting is about to happen to the Department of Business and Economic Development. The governor didn't tell the department he wanted to overhaul it until just before he said so in a speech last month, according to people familiar with the situation, so O'Malley and DBED Secretary David W. Edgerley haven't been reading from the same PowerPoint plan. The risk is that, like governors before him, O'Malley will turn Business and Economic Development Department into a deal-chasing boiler room for planning ribbon-cutting announcements with out-of-state companies.

Forgive the members of the farming industry, the largest in Maryland by some measures, if they do not feel as though they have gotten the same treatment over the years as other businesses in the state. Those in the industry likely do not know what it is like to be, say, General Motors, which received $10 million in public funds to help pay for its Allison Transmission plant in White Marsh. Or, Marriott International, which landed a $9 million grant to help pay for sprucing up its Bethesda headquarters.

Lewin announced plans Wednesday to end his two-year run as secretary of the state Department of Business and Economic Development to return to the private sector. In an interview before addressing the Maryland Chamber of Commerce yesterday, he said any new employer must allow him to continue with efforts to improve Maryland's business climate. "They're going to have to give me ample time to work on public projects," Lewin said.
