Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh released a statement early Thursday morning defending her deal with the University of Maryland Medical System to sell 20,000 of her self-published books at a price of $100,000.

Pugh, who sits on the medical system’s board of directors, said she fully conformed with legal disclosure requirements, filing a form about the deal with the Health Services Cost Review Commission.
