A Deeper Dive into Vacants to Value; Mayoral Candidate David Warnock

Nov 23, 2015

David Warnock, Democratic candidate for Baltimore City mayor.

  Today we’ll dive deeper into Baltimore’s Vacants to Value effort. A recent report from the nonprofit Abell Foundation concluded that the successes of the Vacants to Value program had been overstated by about 40 percent. Two deputy city housing commissioners are here to respond to the report. Who decides whether a vacant should be demolished or rehabbed? What influence can the neighborhood have? 

Then, we welcome venture capitalist and philanthropist David Warnock … continuing our conversations with candidates for mayor of Baltimore. Call us with your questions as we talk about education - Warnock co-founded a charter school in West Baltimore - as well as transportation and strengthening community-police relations.
