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.

If you are not registered to vote, you have until April 5th to register to be able to participate in this important election
