Midday Newsmaker: City Solicitor Andre M. Davis on the Future Of Baltimore

City Solicitor Andre Davis

Tom's guest today is the City Solicitor of Baltimore, Andre M. Davis.

Mr. Davis served for more than 30 years as a judge -- on the Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, the US District Court, the Circuit Court for Baltimore City and the State District Court.

The City Solicitor -- a member of the Mayor's Cabinet and the head of the City Law Department -- oversees a staff of more than 100 lawyers, and serves as one of five members of the Board of Estimates, the municipal spending authority.

Andre Davis was appointed to the position of Solicitor by former Mayor Catherine Pugh, who resigned from office last spring, and who pleaded guilty yesterday to four of 11 counts in an indictment that was unsealed the day before.  Judge Davis joins Tom in Studio A for the hour, and answers listener comments and questions.
