Ulman Changes Chief of Staff

From HoCo PR:

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman announced today that Aaron Greenfield will be resigning from his position as Chief of Staff to accept a job as Director of Government Affairs with Duane Morris, LLP, an international law firm. Ulman also announced that his longtime Senior Advisor, Jessica Feldmark, has been appointed as the County’s new Chief of Staff.

“I make this announcement with mixed feelings,” said Executive Ulman. “While I will miss Aaron’s counsel and expertise in all facets of government, I am incredibly fortunate that Jessica has agreed to step into this critical position. Both Aaron and Jessica have played a huge part in the successes we have had.”

Greenfield was one of the first appointments to the Ulman Administration and he has played a large role in many of the County’s signature initiatives over the past two years.

“I am proud of the accomplishments we have made over the last 24 months,” said Greenfield. “The County Executive has been gracious in sharing the credit, but let me be clear on this, Ken is the driving force on our progress. Anybody that has dealt with this Administration already knows Jessica and knows how incredibly talented she is ---both County citizens and County employees will be well served.”

“I am honored that Executive Ulman has chosen me for this demanding role. These are certainly tough economic times, but I look forward to the challenges of continuing to deliver efficient, effective government to the citizens of Howard County,” said Feldmark.

Feldmark will begin her new role this coming Tuesday, February 17.
