As reported by the Baltimore Sun, Brian Wilbon will take over as interim Department of Human Resources Secretary effective today. Wilbon, who was serving as deputy director of administrative operations, will replace Brenda McDonald who left the position last week to take a job with the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
“I want to make sure we maintain our continuity and maintain the progress we’ve made to date, continuing our Place Matters agenda ensuring that we’re doing the right things for children and getting them in their appropriate settings,” Wilbon said. “Of course, the other big issue is continuing to make progress in the lawsuit. Obviously we’re going to have to put a lot of resources, and time and commitment to make sure we do a better job.”
