Sheila Dixon Returns Security Equipment

The city-owned equipment is valued at $12,000.

It’s better late than never.

Former Mayor Sheila Dixon finally returned $12,000 in city-owned security equipment this week, according to a press release from the Baltimore City Office of Inspector General.   

Traditionally, mayors have returned the equipment after their terms are finished.

But Baltimore police have been trying to get permission from Dixon to remove the equipment from her home since she resigned in February 2010. Police made several attempts to recover the equipment, but were unsuccessful.

The Inspector General’s office became aware of the equipment at Dixon’s home in August 2010. Efforts from the Inspector General’s office and police resulted in the equipment being returned.

Former Baltimore City Mayor, Sheila Dixon, resigned from her position in February, 2010. She was entitled to receive her pension 90 days later which would be sometime in May 2010. I am a former Baltimore City Public School Teacher. I was forced to retire due to a medical disability. I was told that I was liability and basically, no one wanted to be responsible in case something happened to me on the job because of the condition. This took place January 10, 2000. That was my official last day of work. I had enough sick leave to cover my pay until June 16, 2010. Afterwards I filed for my disability retirement and have been waiting for it ever since. ot much was known about my condition, SARCOIDOSIS, and everyone was afraid. I sent in medical paper after medical paper, to no avail. Can anyone out there with some knowledge tell mehow to get my pension, RETROACTIVE, and explain why some people get a 90 day time frame and others take more than 10 years. It's my money, Maryland, and I want it now. it's way long overdue. Do I have a case or what? N

Was Sheila charged a fee retroactove to when she retired? If not, she should be. If she refuses just take it out of her pension that she should gave never received in the first place.
