We’ll spend the hour with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake. Within 5 months of the violence and uprising that ripped through the city in 2015, the Mayor had announced that she would not seek another term, saying she didn’t want to be distracted by politics while she worked to rebuild the city after that cataclysmic event.  What role will the Port Covington development play in those efforts, and have city officials properly vetted all aspects of this enormous project? What’s the status of the frayed relationship between police and communities of color?  And what does the future hold for a young former mayor, who’s no stranger to the national spotlight?
