Now, another in our series of Conversations with the Candidates. Tom's guest is Dan Sparaco, an attorney in private practice and a candidate who's running in the June 2 primary election for Baltimore City Council President.
He is one of eight candidates -- seven Democrats and one Republican -- in the race. He is running on a platform of political reform and a fundamental restructuring of the City Council.
Mr. Sparaco is a native New Yorker who earned his law degree at the University of Pennsylvania and worked for several years as an attorney with The Legal Aid Society in New York. He moved to Baltimore in 2010 to work in Baltimore’s Legal Department. In 2013, he was appointed Assistant Deputy Mayor for Operations under Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.
Dan Sparaco is 44 years old. He lives in Greenmount West, and he joins Tom on the line from his home office.
