We were happy to read in the Baltimore Sun that 28 properties owned by failed businessman Milton Tillman we auctioned off yesterday.  Hopefully these properties will be purchased by people who will either live in them, or rehab them as moderate-income properties.  It would be a shame to see them go from one slumlord to another.  Additional Tillman-owned properties are in foreclosure. An end of an era?  One can only hope.

Milton Tilman, III has apparently not paid his homeowner’s association dues on his swank townhouse in the Moorings at Canton development or his condo at Lighthouse Landing — perhaps he can purchase one of the auctioned homes in McElderry Park.
