A Milford Mill man known for political protests involving putting toilets in front of a county government building in Towson has filed as a candidate for Lt. Governor in 2014.

Ken Ulman dropped by Landover Wednesday to satisfy a bet with his Prince George's County equal.
Howard County Executive Ken Ulman dropped by Landover on Wednesday to pick up roadside trash in a Redskins jersey, fulfilling the terms of a wager with Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker. The two top officials had placed a friendly bet on Sunday's matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Redskins. Ulman, a diehard Ravens fan, lost out when Baltimore fell to the 'Skins 31-28 in overtime. Baker, ever the gracious victor, invited Ulman earlier this week to meet him at the Prince George's County Sports & Learning Complex in the shadow of FedEx Field. Though Ulman arrived sporting purple, he soon found himself clad in the burgundy-and-gold jersey of rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. After some friendly trash talk…

After losing to a wager Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker, Ken Ulman says he'll be picking up trash on Baker's home turf.
Howard County Executive Ken Ulman says he'll make good on a bet with County Executive Rushern Baker this week, meaning the dyed-in-the-wool Ravens fan will be picking up trash in Prince George's County while singing "Hail to the Redskins" and wearing a Washington jersey. "I'm having a tough, tough day. As you know the Ravens lost, and I lost my bet to [Baker]," Ulman said in a YouTube video released on Monday. Last week, Ulman challenged Baker to a bet that the Baltimore Ravens would beat Baker's Redskins. On Sunday, the Redskins pulled off a 31-28 dramatic come-from-behind win in overtime. In his video, Ulman asked anyone willing to lend him a Redskins jersey to tweet a picture of it to @KenUlman.

The two county executives have a lot riding on Sunday's game.
Ladies and gentlemen of the Baltimore-Washington corridor: it is on. That's the message out from Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman ahead of Sunday's Ravens-Redskins matchup at FedEx Field. The two sparred on Fox 5 Thursday night, agreeing to a friendly wager over the game. Ulman, a proud Ravens fan, had thrown down the gauntlet earlier by offering to wear the jersey of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III if Washington wins. But if the Ravens win, Ulman proposed that Baker would have to wear a Haloti Ngata jersey and make it a "purple friday" next week in Prince George's County. Baker upped the ante even more during their on-air interview, suggesting that Ulman would have to pick up …
