Mayor Gavin Buckley, a Democrat, was elected to lead Maryland's historic capital city in December, 2017.

The former Annapolis restaurateur — who has led the historic capital city since 2017, through a tragic mass shooting and a pandemic — is hopeful about its future.

Today on Midday, it’s Midday with the Mayor, with Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley. He was born in South Africa, grew up in Australia, and after a successful career as a restaurateur in Annapolis became the Mayor of the state’s capital city in December, 2017. A Democrat, he has announced that he will stand for re-election in November of this year.

He joins Tom today to discuss the many challenges Annapolis has faced during his tenure, from the June 28, 2018 mass shooting at the Capital Gazette newsroom to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the persistent environmental threats to the waterfront city now intensifying because of climate change and the rising Chesapeake Bay.
