Mayor’s “State of the City” Targets Crime, Housing Issues with Optimism

Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott’s first in-person “State of the City” address looked at successes and challenges, and set sights on tough issues confronting city leaders.

The roughly 45-minute long address highlighted the administration’s accomplishments and plans to continue the Mayor’s commitment to shape a safer, more resilient, equitable, and accountable Baltimore that better meets the needs of its residents.

The Baltimore Sun‘s coverage noted:

“We’ve been through a lot together in the past two years, and we have still been able to advance by leaps and bounds,” said Scott, speaking to a crowd that included most members of City Council, Comptroller Bill Henry and State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby.

“Baltimore is rising, and that’s a fact,” Scott continued. “Violent crime and gun violence will continue to be addressed, our communities are being restored and the way in which our city government operates is being revived.”
