Annapolis notes 2/11
ANNAPOLIS - House Speaker Casper R. Taylor Jr. rebuffed speculation last week that he wants to run for lieutenant governor.
Taylor made his comments while briefing reporters in his office about the leadership changes he will make when Del. Nancy Kopp, D-Montgomery, is sworn in as treasurer later this month.
"I'll be able to reshuffle the deck next year. You'll notice I said that I'll shuffle the deck," said Taylor, D-Allegany.
Taylor also filed paperwork for re-election to the House of Delegates on Thursday.
A story in The (Baltimore) Sun last week said Taylor wants Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend to consider him as a running mate.
