7-19-10: Brenda Donald and Maryland’s Safety Net
The Maryland Department of Human Resources looks after much of Maryland’s safety net: food stamps, foster care, child protection, and much more.
Friday is Secretary Donald’s last day. Today she stops by to tell Sheilah what troubles she inherited at DHR, what she’s done about them, and what challenges Maryland’s safety net faces going forward.
In December, Secretary Donald joined Sheilah to talk about delays in the administration of food stamps.
In May, Erin Sullivan, then the managing editor at City Paper, told Sheilah about her own reporting on Maryland’s safety net.
