We continue our weekly series of conversations with people who have announced their candidacy for the office of Mayor of Baltimore. Today, Tom's guest is Nick Mosby. He is a Democrat. He is several weeks away from his 36th birthday. He lives in Reservoir Hill with his wife, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, and their two young daughters.
After graduating from Tuskeegee University with a degree in electrical engineering, Nick Mosby worked in the utility industry, first as a network engineer with Verizon, and later as a senior project manager for BGE. In 2011, he was elected to represent West Baltimore's 7th district on the City Council. Among his notable initiatives as a councilman was passage of the “Ban the Box” legislation, which allows ex-felons in Baltimore City to disclose their conviction later in the hiring process when they apply for jobs. He has released a 15-point plan for the future of Baltimore, on issues ranging from education and good governance to blight and economic equity. You can read more here.
Tonight at 5:30, there will be a forum of mayoral candidates at the Impact Hub at the Center Theater in Station North. If you can’t make it in person, it will be live-streamed. Next week, Tom's guest will be Democratic mayoral candidate and Baltimore businessman David Warnock.
