  Today we’ll begin the first of many dialogues with Baltimore’s 2016 mayoral candidates. Up first: Two-term City Council member of the 12th district, Carl Stokes. We’ll discuss his plans for the city, which include making City Hall more transparent to taxpayers, and starting an “uptown Renaissance” where underserved communities are redeveloped. We’ll also follow up on our conversation from last week about the Baltimore Housing scandals.

Also, a new study from the American Cancer Society reports that black women have become as likely as white women to get breast cancer. Could obesity really be the link? Dr. Otis Brawley, the American Cancer Society's Chief Medical Officer of the joins us from Atlanta to discuss the possible causes.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
