O'Malley Says Grasmick Should Go


State Schools Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick is one Maryland official that Gov.-elect Martin O'Malley has no immediate way to replace. But the Baltmore mayor is not hiding his views on the subject.

"It might be a good time for her to see that a change is needed," O'Malley said during an interview this morning on Washignton Post Radio, one of several media appearances he is making today in the wake of his victory Tuesday over Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.

Grasmick serves at the pleasure of the State Board of Education, whose members the governor appoints. But there will not be openings for O'Malley to fill until July, and it could be another year after that before the majority of members are his appointees.

At a news conference yesterday, O'Malley told reporters that he had not spoken to Grasmick in a year and a half. But they have sparred through the media over the status of Baltimore schools, with O'Malley accusing Grasmick of doing Ehrlich's bidding to embarrass him on the issue during the campaign.
