Charm City Gets a New Mayor

Baltimore@Random congratulates State Senator Cathy Pugh on her election as Mayor of Baltimore City. Mayor-elect Pugh has her work cut out for her. She faces a city divided. The divisions fall along lines of race and socioeconomic class in a city where developers seek tax advantages as a matter of entitlement while the effects of racial redlining criple the prospects of black and brown Baltimoreans.

We would like to acknowledge the efforts of Joshua Harris in running an ambitious campaign for Mayor. We hope to see more of this young man in the months and years to come.
