It would seem that Charles “Bud” Runkles is a busy guy.  In addition to being Stanley Rochkind’s sometime-Resident Agent, he’s also a lead paint abatement contractor. And the address of his business traces back to Stanley Rochkind’s building at 5616 Park Heights Avenue.

Here are some prime examples of Mr. Runkles’ activities in West Baltimore:

Property Addresses  1017 W. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD 21223, 1021 W. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD 21223, 105 N. Carrollton Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21223

Property Owner:  BGM Realty #5 Corp., PO Box 32118, Baltimore, MD 21282, BGM Realty #6 Corp., (same address), and BGM Realty #7 Corp. (again, same address as #5 and #6)

Resident Agent for BGM Realty #5 Corp., BGM Realty #6 Corp., and BGM Realty #7 Corp.:  Charles Runkles

City Council District and Contact:  District 9, Agnes Welch

1017 W. Fayette Street
1021 W. Fayette Street
105 N. Carrollon Avenue

Considering the number of lawsuits filed against these men for lead paint violations, we’re shocked that neither of them have been stripped of their professional licenses.  Time for MDE and DLLR to get on the ball and make sure these two men are no longer able to wreak this kind of havoc on YOUR community.
