Today on Midday: a topic that has run hot and cold in the news for more than 30 years.  Squeegee Kids.  Tom's guest is Tisha Edwards, the executive director of Baltimore Mayor Jack Young’s new Office of Children and Family Success.  Tisha Edwards’ office released a “Squeegee Alternative Plan” intended to eradicate the practice of “squeegeeing.”  

Tisha Edwards served as Chief of Staff under Mayor Catherine Pugh at the beginning of the Pugh Administration, and in 2013, she served as the interim CEO of the Baltimore City Public School System.
