MOAG SAYS HE HAS NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST WITH NEW POSITION
Published June 8, 1998
MD Stadium Authority Chair John Moag, who was named to head the sports investment group at Legg Mason Wood Walker Inc., said that he "will take the steps necessary to avoid conflicts of interest," according to Jon Morgan of the Baltimore SUN. Moag said that his investment group "won't be looking for work" in MD and added, "The kind of stuff I'm going to be doing here is out of state." However, Morgan wrote that others "aren't so sure," including MD Common Cause Exec Dir Kathleen Skullney, who called Moag's new position "very problematic," and said Moag "has a responsibility to the state not to wear those two hats." Moag said that he "will recuse himself from consideration of business that might overlap with Legg Mason's work," adding that Legg Mason "won't do business" with the Stadium Authority or either Baltimore team (Baltimore SUN, 6/7).
