Prince George's County Executive-elect Rushern Baker isn't commenting on the arrest of his predecessor, but Baker's transition team says he is staying focused on residents' concerns and his reform agenda.

County Executive Jack Johnson was arrested Friday in an investigation related to allegations that some developers were bribing public officials.

On Saturday, Baker spokesman Scott Peterson said Baker is focused on his agenda to improve education, the economy and "deliver a more effective, efficient and ethical government."

In May, Baker called for an ethics reform package, including the first county inspector general. He called for a ban on county credit cards for elected officials and tighter campaign finance regulations.

Baker ran against Johnson twice in the past.
