Ken Ulman’s Curriculum Vitae

Sorry to have missed the forum on Saturday as reported in the Baltimore Sun. Sounds like a real hoot 'n holler.
I won't miss the next one sponsored by Restorus.org

As for Saturday at St. John Baptist Church
The fur was flying – so Mr. Larry Carson seems to imply.
I supposed Larry hit all the highlights. I wasn't there so I don't know.
What struck me about the article was the exchange on management and executive experience.
Ken Ulman manages one person and, seemingly on the defensive, retorted "in fact, you're a lobbyist." Don't you think one should know one's competition? Merdon is a VP of Sales. That is not a lobbyist. A friend who was there told me that Mr. Ulman implied that since Merdon heads up Government Sales to the State of Maryland and a Republican is Governor Merdon is some how not working hard – or is hitting up fellow Republicans for easy sales. Hmmm. Pretty bold.
The article did nothing to expand upon the tremendous amount of executive experience Mr. Ulman outlines on his web site .
Before beginning his law practice, Ken interned in the White House and then worked for the Clinton/Gore 96 campaign, serving in many capacities, such as: Western Iowa Field Director and Wyoming State Director. Ken worked for the Presidential Inaugural Committee and later worked for the State of Maryland.
First, Ken worked in the Office of the Secretary of State in the Charities Division and then in Intergovernmental Affairs, serving as a liaison to local governments and municipalities across Maryland. Later, Ken served as the Governor’s Director of the Board of Public Works and Special Projects, as well as Secretary of the cabinet.
My friend commented on this as well. Apparantly he runs through his resume pretty quickly and doesn't go into any detail. Well, don't you think that is a lot of executive experience? I think it is and I would like to know more about these positions, what he accomplished, how many direct reports he had, etc.
Now the most impressive sounding part of his curriculum vitae is:
- Director of the Board of Public Works and Special Projects
- Secretary of the cabinet
As impressive as they sound must have come with a great deal of responsibility. He should elaborate on his roles and responsibilities in these positions. On the surface they sound great, but I used to be a Petroleum Tranfer Engineer (I pumped gasoline) and a Transportation Specialist (I sold cars).
I wish Mr. Ulman would dispell the suspicion that he is fluffing up his resume.
This site gets a lot of visitors from State Government. Even the Executive Office of the President of the United States visits (I am honored). Perhaps one of the State employees who visits can post some information on those two positions? I would appreciate it as would my readers.
