State Senator Catherine Pugh has staved off a late effort from former Mayor Sheila Dixon to become the mayor-elect of Baltimore City. Pugh also defeated Republican Alan Walden and the Green Party’s Joshua Harris in the process.
Catherine Pugh began outlining plans for her administration at a news conference Wednesday morning, her first as Baltimore’s mayor-elect.
For starters, Police Commissioner Kevin Davis will stay, but longtime city Housing Commissioner Paul Graziano will be out. And she wants to end the city-state partnership that has run the schools since the late 90s.
