Banner political notes: Mayor’s spokesman shifted to DPW, Hogan doesn’t like Cox’s chances

October 17, 2022

A top city aide who was pulled from the Department of Public Works to turn around Mayor Brandon Scott’s communications office has rejoined the DPW, several weeks after the administration was fiercely criticized for public outreach around an E. coli contamination in city water. Scott’s former communications director James Bentley is once again the DPW’s director of communications. A Labor Day weekend E. coli scare left much of West Baltimore and Baltimore County under a boil-water advisory for days last month. But frustration over the incident from both residents and elected officials has focused on the DPW’s delayed and confusing public outreach as much as at the contamination itself.
