Criticized for not doing enough to bring disparate communities together and for ignoring constituents, incumbent Fourth District City Councilman Bill Henry is facing three challengers in the Democratic primary.

Luke Broadwater of The Baltimore Sun and WYPR news analyst Fraser Smith join us to discuss the implications.
