Maryland Delegate Keiffer Mitchell (D-Baltimore), '94, was quoted in The Baltimore Sun calling for stepped-up scrutiny of property tax credit programs in Baltimore, after a Baltimore Sun investigation found that chronic errors have cost the city millions of dollars in lost revenue, despite warnings stretching back more than a decade.

Del. Keiffer Mitchell said many members of the General Assembly would cheer an examination of how the state's handling of tax credits might have deprived the city of revenue, given widespread resentment of the city in Annapolis.

"This would be welcome among the jurisdictions that kind of see Baltimore as a drain on state finances," he said.

Mitchell, a Baltimore Democrat, said he found it "troubling" that top city finance officials received an internal memo in 2001 alerting them to calculation errors with the historic credit — the same kinds of errors The Sun found still occurring. "The warning signs were there," he said.
