Overseas Travel by Nick Mosby Aide Violated Board of Estimates Rules – But is Approved Anyway

Nick Mosby’s chief of staff, who traveled 3,700 miles to Oxford, England to attend a $1,359-a-day “chief of staff executive” course earlier this month, was granted full travel reimbursements today by the Board of Estimates.

The retroactive award of over $9,000 came despite the fact that the aide, Lawrence Rasad Anderson, went abroad for a week (from September 3 to September 9) without board approval.

The Baltimore Administrative Manual states that “The Board of Estimates must approve requests for travel prior to the date of the planned travel” (AM-240-3).
