pugh.jpg

We welcome State Senator Catherine Pugh to Midday, as we continue our conversations with Baltimore’s 2016 mayoral candidates. We'll talk about education - Pugh helped found the Baltimore Design School in Station North - and reducing violent crime - she’s co-chair of the General Assembly’s Public Safety and Policing Work Group. Plus, how will she work to grow Baltimore's business sector? Join the conversation with your questions and calls for Senator Catherine Pugh.

Also, Officer William Porter, one of the six Baltimore police officers charged in Freddie Gray’s arrest and death, took the stand in his defense yesterday. We get an update from WYPR reporter Kenneth Burns on the cross-examination of Porter and on the testimony of another Baltimore police officer who was involved in Gray’s initial arrest.
