When Harry Hughes was elected governor in 1978, his transition team consisted of himself and a few trusted advisers. Today, though, Hughes is co-chairing a 47-member transition team helping Peter Franchot ease into the Maryland comptroller's office, as well as serving on the 42-member transition team of Gov.-elect Martin O'Malley. He somehow escaped being named to the third transition team that is in business these days - City Council President Sheila Dixon's 47-member group, marshaling her move into O'Malley's soon-to-be vacated mayor's office.

Criticism, even of the constructive sort, is often unwelcome, but the charges of inefficiency and lack of direction at some city agencies contained in Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake's transition team report are exactly what Baltimore needs to hear right now. Faced with a $120 million budget shortfall, Baltimore can't afford not to cut inefficient programs and agencies, while making every effort to save the ones that work. But the transition team's 230-page report suggests there is no simple or painless way to return efficient government and fiscal solvency to the city.
