In response to the Federal Emergency Management Agency's decision to deny flood benefits to Eastern Shore communities, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman said that "we cannot forget those impacted by Hurricane Sandy" ("Inspectors to evaluate Eastern Shore homes, businesses for Sandy damage," Dec. 8).
We also shouldn't forget that there's a gubernatorial election in 2014 — an election in which Mr. Ulman is probably going to seek the Democratic Party nomination.
That may explain why he's opining on something so removed from his official duties in Howard County.
