Today, Council President Brandon M. Scott formally announced his bid for Mayor of Baltimore City.
In announcing his candidacy, Scott highlighted a vision for the city where Baltimoreans can reach their full capacity in a safe, clean, and effective city.
“Baltimore needs a Mayor who understands all of Baltimore and does not cater to special interests but who is willing to invest in communities with the highest need and into initiatives that save our youth. We need a Mayor who will treat gun violence as a disease and throw the full force of government, not just the police, into addressing this epidemic.”
As Council President, Brandon has visited neighborhoods throughout Baltimore listening to neighbors priorities. Baltimoreans spoke up with passion — they want a mayor who will tackle crime everyday and clean up the corruption in Baltimore City government. Brandon understands that we need smart solutions to the unique challenges in every community. Today, Scott will kick off a city wide tour, where he will continue those conversations about how we can build a brighter future for Baltimore.
