Kurt Schmoke, Baltimore’s first elected African American mayor, won national recognition for his work on adult literacy and public housing from Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. In a special filming of his One-on-One program for the Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) Summer Conference, Phil Tilghman of PAC-14 asks Schmoke for his perspective and reflections on governing, public safety, and education – all the challenges faced by local governments large and small.

Schmoke became state’s attorney for the City of Baltimore in 1982 and was elected mayor in 1987. During his tenure as Baltimore’s mayor, Schmoke initiated a number of innovative programs in housing, education, public health and economic development. Schmoke currently serves as President of the University of Baltimore.

Tilghman’s interview, A Discussion with Kurt Schmoke, on Friday, August 14, 2015, from 2:15-3:15 pm at the Roland Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, Maryland, is open to all MACo Conference attendees and will be aired on PAC-14 news.
