MoCo Delegate Tapped for Obama Transition Team
Del. Brian J. Feldman (D-Montgomery) is among the latest Maryland politicians to land a role in the Obama transition.
Feldman, who worked for 13 years as a tax division lawyer at the U.S. Department of Justice before getting into politics, has been tapped as an adviser to President-elect Barack Obama's transition team reviewing the Justice Department.
Feldman's name has also been circulating recently as a potential Democratic challenger in 2010 to Comptroller Peter Franchot (D) -- an ambition Feldman hasn't confirmed but didn't exactly rule out either.
Other Maryland pols with Obama transition roles include: Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler (D); Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D) and Thomas E. Perez, Gov. Martin O'Malley's secretary of labor, licensing and regulation.
Perez, a former U.S. Justice Department lawyer and Montgomery County Council member, was noticeably absent today when O'Malley (D) convened a Cabinet meeting in Ellicott City, part of the administration's monthly or so "capital for a day" series. The governor explained that Perez was fully immersed in his transition work.
