City Administrator Will Be On Ballot After Override

The Baltimore City Council overrode the Mayor’s veto of a charter amendment creating a City Administrator position, putting that item among several ballot questions for City voters in November.

From coverage in the Baltimore Sun:

[Council President and mayoral nominee Brandon] Scott says the creation of a high-profile city administrator position will “professionalize” local government and bring Baltimore in line with the best practices in place across several surrounding jurisdictions. The City Council approved the proposal and supported presenting the idea to voters for approval on November’s ballot.
