A spokesman for Hogan, a Republican, said there are "absolutely no plans" to move any more employees from the State Center. Spokesman Doug Mayer said the move last summer does not signal broader plans about the future of the complex.
"There are no plans to move any state offices that are in Baltimore City currently outside of Baltimore City," he said.
Mayer said the governor's offices of children, of service and volunteerism and of community initiatives were moved to Crownsville to foster better collaboration.
"I'd say I'm still very concerned, particularly since I had no notice that the administration planned to pursue these relocations in the first place," he said. "The administration's quiet relocation of state agencies outside of the city without notice to communities seems unreasonably disruptive, regardless of the situation with State Center."
Ferguson's district does not include the State Center, but he has been an outspoken critic of the governor on issues relating to Baltimore.
"I want to believe that the administration had the best of intentions," he said. "Unfortunately, when we've consistently seen this administration forcefully withdraw planned public investments from Baltimore City, it is hard to believe there isn't some broader strategy at play."
Mayor Catherine Pugh is "anxious to keep every state employee in the city," a spokesman said. When Pugh, a Democrat, was a state senator, her district included the State Center.
"It's the mayor's hope that we are going to see a State Center facility in Baltimore City with the same number of state employees that we currently see housed in the city," spokesman Anthony McCarthy said.
State employees contribute to the city's tax base, he said, and keeping them is an "important priority."
Chris Coffey, a consultant working with the State Center development team, said the project was ready to advance, and would have ensured that the thousands of jobs now at the complex would remain in Baltimore.
"It may be 100 jobs [relocated] now," said Coffey, of Tusk Strategies. "But that's 100 jobs that are no longer in the community, no longer within Baltimore, and we really think it could be the tip of the iceberg."
