Catherine Pugh has resigned as mayor of Baltimore amid scrutiny from federal, state and city investigators over deals for her self-published children’s books. As the city moves forward under Mayor Jack Young, who has been at the head of government since Pugh took medical leave a month ago, we ask the Baltimore Sun’s Andy Green and Baltimore Beat’s Lisa Snowden McCray what this changing of the guard means for the city.

We planned to air an interview with the nonprofit Pets of Wheels this morning - you’ll hear that another time. Here is information their annual Bull and Oyster Feast fundraiser, tomorrow evening at St. Joseph Parish Hall in White Marsh.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
