Baltimore City Leaders Optimistic Wes Moore’s Administration Will Pave A New Relationship Between The City And Governor’s Office

What’s happening?

Baltimore leaders hope Wes Moore’s upcoming tenure as Governor of Maryland will allow for prosperity and progress in a city often neglected and criticized by Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s administration, Joe Heim reports for the Washington Post. 

What were the points of contention between Baltimore City and Gov. Hogan? 

The relationship between Hogan and Baltimore City began to sour in 2015, when the governor gutted a $2.9 billion plan to introduce the Red Line, a light rail that would have connected the city’s poorest neighborhoods to downtown business districts. About $288 million had already been spent in the years-long planning process when Hogan called the plan a “wasteful boondoggle,” and instead, diverted funding to the Purple Line in the Washington suburbs. With Baltimore’s plans halted, the city lost $900 million in federal funds meant for the project.

“Many of us have felt that our governor has held our city with contempt and has not always seen us as a part of the whole picture of Maryland. This is a city that’s been looking for a governor that’s simply a friend. But it would be preferable, at minimum, to have a governor that believes in you, knows you, embraces you and sees you as a full part of our state,” said Del. Stephanie M. Smith (D-Baltimore)..

Hogan also criticized the city’s leaders for what he referred to as the failure to prosecute violent crime, including accusing Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott of neglecting to follow through on his plan to address crime and condemning Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s handling of criminal convictions. 

“Quite candidly, he’s been more concerned with pointing the finger at everyone else as opposed to actually leading and delivering for a city that is the heartbeat for this state,” Mosby said at a news conference, referring to Hogan.

Anything else I should know?

Some Baltimoreans believe Hogan’s relationship with the city wasn’t as contentious as others considered it to be, claiming that the governor pushed for beneficial projects in the city while also holding leaders accountable. As an example of Hogan’s service to the city, Howard Libit, executive director of the Baltimore Jewish Council and the former communications director for a previous mayor, cited the redevelopment of the Pimlico Race Course and surrounding neighborhood, as well as Project C.O.R.E—a $75 million project to build green space in place of abandoned buildings.

    Throughout this great scheme of things you secure a B- with regard to hard work. Where you actually misplaced me ended up being on the details. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be much more accurate here. Having said that, let me reveal to you exactly what did give good results. The writing is certainly very powerful and that is possibly the reason why I am making an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, whilst I can see the leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really sure of how you seem to connect the details which inturn help to make your conclusion. For right now I will subscribe to your issue however hope in the future you actually connect your facts better.

  18. Can I simply say what a comfort to find someone that
    genuinely understands what they are discussing online.
    You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you aren’t more popular given that you surely have the gift.

    I was thinking of starting a blog so I did some research into it on the internet and came across a lot of stuff that talks about legal issues and blogging. I’m not planning on blogging about controversial issues, (my blog would focus on posts about books, movies, culture, theater, music etc, and all material would be solely my own opinions) so what legal issues are involved with blogging? . Should I write a copyright disclaimer or are blog disclaimers actually worthless?.
