Deputy Mayor Dzirasa Amends her Ethics Statement to Include her Husband’s Contract

Baltimore Deputy Mayor Letitia Dzirasa today changed her ethics statement to acknowledge that her husband’s company has a large contract with the city, hours after The Brew disclosed that Mayor Brandon Scott and other members of the Board of Estimates were about to approve a $250,000 cost overrun.

The fresh slug of money going to Fearless Solutions LLC, owned and operated by her husband, Delali Dzirasa, was not previously disclosed by the deputy mayor, as required by Section 7-22 of the city ethics law.

“This represents an amendment,” she wrote in disclosing the contract this morning, swearing the new information is “true to the best of my knowledge, information and belief.”
