Mayor Rawlings-Blake Issues Statement on Inspector General's Report on Speed Camera Program
BALTIMORE, Md. (December 4, 2014)—Today, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake issued the following statement regarding Baltimore City Inspector General's evaluation of the Automated Traffic Violation Enforcement System:
"I want to thank the Inspector General for his thorough investigation into the Baltimore City speed camera program. We will build on these recommendations to ensure Baltimore City gets it right. The recommendations from this report will be adopted to ensure our future program is transparent, reliable and accurate for the citizens of Baltimore City. The actions of my former chief of staff, Alex Sanchez, had no influence over my participation in the contract bid between Xerox and Brekford. This is evidenced by my vote at the Board of Estimates to award the contract to Brekford, despite protests from Xerox. The inspector general confirms this contention in his report, and my hope is that Mr. Sanchez will respond to the inspector general's request to talk through the issues raised."
