Incumbent Mayor Jack Young represented a Northeast Baltimore District on the City Council for 14 years before becoming City Council president in 2010.
He became mayor in May 2019 after Mayor Catherine Pugh resigned in the fall-out from the 'Healthy Holly' scandal. He placed last in the most recent WYPR, Baltimore Sun, University of Baltimore poll with only 5%.
Speaking with Midday host Tom Hall in May, Young emphasized his ability to collaborate with partners to produce results.
“That's what I've done my whole career is work in partnership and trying to get a win-win out of everything that I've done since I’ve been on city council and as mayor, and I’ve been able to do that.”
