Jim Shea, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott’s nominee to be the city’s next solicitor, is one step closer to being confirmed for the job following a unanimous vote by Baltimore City Council’s Rules and Government Oversight Committee on Thursday. Shea, the former chairman emeritus of the Venable law firm and a 2018 gubernatorial candidate, has been working for the city in an acting capacity since January. He will next face two votes from City Council’s full 15-member body.
