A few weeks after ending his term as a City Councilman, Nick Mosby returned to a Baltimore elected office.
In the latest round of political musical chairs, Mosby got the nod to represent the city in the House of Delegates from the Democratic State Central Committee on Thursday night, according to WBAL. He’ll have to be formally appointed by Gov. Larry Hogan.
Mosby, who is husband of Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, ran for mayor last year. But he got out of the race before Election Day and backed Mayor Catherine Pugh. He ended his term as a City Councilman representing West Baltimore in December. Now, he’ll represent Baltimore in Annapolis. The seat was open because of Pugh’s election as mayor. Del. Barbara Robison was appointed to the Senate, leaving an open House seat.
Mosby beat out Tiffany Welch, who is the daughter of former Councilman Pete Welch.
This is the second name the Committee will send Hogan to be appointed to the House. The first, Pugh aide Gary Brown Jr., was indicted earlier this week on charges of making illegal campaign contributions.
The Baltimore Sun reports Brown attended the meeting on Thursday. He voted for Welch.
