The Glover Report: A Week Full of Political Maneuvers in Baltimore City Election Slated for April 26, 2016

41st District Delegate Jill P. Carter
12th District Baltimore City Councilman Carl Stokes
Former Mayor Sheila Dixon

By Doni Glover, Publisher

(BALTIMORE - October 2, 2015) - Last night, a group of Asian-American and other business owners invited Delegate Jill Carter, Baltimore City Councilman Carl Stokes, and former Mayor Sheila Dixon to a forum to hear their vision for business in Greater Baltimore.

I believe Baltimore City Councilman Nick Mosby was invited, too; I say that because he had a person there videotaping Sheila Dixon’s every word.

And so, given that I am unapologetically a Dixon fan, let me just state that she did an excellent job demonstrating her understanding of what it takes to be mayor of our hometown.

Not taking anything away from the other two persons who have interest in being mayor, Sheila Dixon definitely looked the part, showed that she has a functional knowledge of how to effectively and efficiently get things done, while at the same time giving the strong sense that she not only cares for people, but also understands people.

I won’t bash the other candidates, but what I will say is that anybody looking to run for mayor had best bring their lunch box. It’s not going to be easy, that is, if you plan on beating Team Dixon. After all, she is the only 2-time citywide winner in this race, thus far. For me, that suggests she probably knows a little more than the average Joe on the street about what it takes to win on April 26, 2016.

And for those who missed it, the Baltimore Sun reported earlier this week that Wes Moore is not running for mayor. Further, word is Councilman Mosby will announce in the immediate future his intentions to run for mayor; if this is so, one can probably count on Shawn Tarrant to run to replace Mosby on the City Council.

The filing deadline is February 3, 2016. FMI, visit the Baltimore City Board of Elections. An educated voter is an empowered voter.
