They may be competing for the same position, but five of the 11 candidates running for the District 10 seat on the Baltimore City Council have joined forces to urge Baltimore’s top attorney to support the Baltimore Clean Air Act after a federal judge overturned the law last week.

Candidates Bill Marker, Natasha Guynes, Ray Conaway, Kerry Hamilton and Bob Cockey–who are all vying for the city council seat currently held by soon-to-be-retired Councilman Ed Reisinger–sent the letter to Acting Baltimore City Solicitor Dana P. More, calling on the city to appeal the judge’s decision.

While the story happens roughly 100 miles away from here, and decades after the painful decline of industry in Baltimore, the tale should ring some familiar bells in 2018 in this once industrially renowned town, Tim Smith wrote in his final theater review for The Sun.
