Today, we begin a series of conversations with people who have announced their intention to run for Mayor of Baltimore. As of Monday (January 11th), 9 Democrats, 1 Republican, 1 Green Party Candidate, 1 Independent, and 3 Unaffiliated candidates have registered with the Board of Elections to be on the April 26 ballot. Several candidates who have opened campaign headquarters and who have been actively campaigning have yet to file with the Board of Elections. Their deadline to do so is three weeks from today, February 3rd.
Each Wednesday for the next several weeks, we’ll take some time here on Maryland Morning to speak with candidates about their vision for the city. Today, Tom's guest is Elizabeth Embry. She is a lawyer. She is 38 years old. She lives in Waverly, and she has worked most recently as the chief of the criminal division in the Maryland Attorney General’s office. She is a Democrat. She announced her candidacy on November 6th.
