When Bernard “Jack” Young took over as Baltimore City mayor after Catherine Pugh resigned in scandal he assured voters that he was not seeking the office in 2020. News is now circulating suggesting that Young will indeed seek the nomination, and that he is currently lining up funders behind a run. It seems as if Young runs his goal will be to use his sizable war chest in order to chase most potential challengers out of the race, leaving voters in the primary election with as few choices as possible.
Whether or not Young runs for a position he promised not to seek, the 2020 election is looking like the Baltimore Democratic Party establishment will offer voters much of the same old thing, well funded lifetime politicians who have been in charge for a long time, who have the power and influence to get other politicians behind them.
The Baltimore City Green Party does not think that the city can afford more of the same and encourages residents who believe that it is time to change the game to consider seeking office for 2020. We believe in Racial, Economic and Environmental justice and are guided by 10 key values that we think make a better Baltimore and Beyond.
