Who is the most highly paid state of Maryland employee?
If your guess was Gov. Martin O’Malley – who earned $150,000 in 2012 – you’re way off, according to an updated state salary database on the Baltimore Sun website.
But Maryland’s top wage-earners outside of collegiate sports were University of Maryland doctors, the newspaper says. At the School of Medicine, dean and vice president of medical affairs, Dr. E. Albert Reece, made $796,184.
According to the Sun, many of Maryland’s agency heads have bigger paychecks than the governor, including University of Maryland, Baltimore, President Dr. Jay A. Perman, who made $789,565; Paul Wiedefeld, CEO of the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, who made $260,859; and Michael J. Frenz, director of the Maryland Stadium Authority, who made $249,332.
