Midday Newsmaker: City Council President Brandon M. Scott
Tom's guest is President of the Baltimore City Council, Brandon Scott. He was elected President by his colleagues on the City Council in a unanimous vote last May, despite Mayor Jack Young’s preference for the Council’s Vice President, Sharon Green Middleton to assume the position she had held in an interim capacity during the weeks former Mayor Catherine Pugh pondered her political future.
Last week, Mr. Scott weighed-in on where he sees Baltimore’s future. He unveiled a detailed list of legislative and policy proposals that would result in significant changes in the way the city operates.
City Council President Scott will be hosting town halls throughout the summer.
In addition to attending the community halls, residents are encouraged to share their ideas and reactions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and using the hashtag #BaltimoreCanBmore on social media.
