Following a Midnight Drop of Amendments to Hobble Baltimore County’s Inspector General, Julian Jones Held a Private Meeting About Them

In the wee hours, after sending out amendments that would drastically limit the powers of Baltimore County’s inspector general, the chair of the County Council, Julian E. Jones Jr., summoned his fellow politicians to a private meeting about the changes.

“Please see the attached documents,” Jones wrote in his message, sent after midnight on Sunday (December 3).

“I would like all the members to meet at 5:00 p.m. Monday to discuss the amendments as a group,” he continued, attaching a copy of the amended legislation that was never publicly posted or disclosed by his office.
