As the Board of Estimates approved the Wyndham Inner Harbor East Hotel yesterday, an influential business group told the mayor that he has his priorities backward and should instead first develop a hotel next to the expanded Baltimore Convention Center.The Greater Baltimore Committee, in a letter to the mayor signed by GBC Chairman Frank Bramble, argued that the lack of a closer hotel endangers the $151 million public investment in the expanded center and seriously jeopardizes the city's relationship with the state legislature.

Is a separate chamber of commerce needed in Baltimore City?This question is being debated around the region, with some politicians and entrepreneurs saying the Greater Baltimore Committee has failed as a cheerleader for the city and as an advocate for its smaller businesses. We suspect much of this debate centers on complaints that have little to do with the GBC's real or perceived failures but are connected with confusion over the roles of certain established institutions.The city's -- and region's -- leadership is in crisis.
