Baltimore’s mayor will take an indefinite leave from office after news emerged that she secured a lucrative sales deal with the University of Maryland Medical System for a kids book series she wrote — while she sat on its board. Mayor Catherine Pugh announced Monday she will step away from the job as she faced intensifying backlash for netting more than $500,000 from the sale of the books, secured with a no-contract bid arrangement with the institution. While a UMMS board member, Pugh cashed checks from book sales as part of a deal made in 2011 with the medical system to distribute her self-published “Healthy Holly” illustrated series to Baltimore schoolchildren. The Democrat — who became mayor in 2016 — called the deal a regrettable mistake last week in a news conference. She recently returned $100,000 to the medical system and resigned from the board, which she served on for nearly two decades.
