Maryland’s primary election is tomorrow, July 19. For voters who have not already voted — either during early voting or via mail-in ballot — and are still undecided, hear directly from candidates for governor, attorney general and comptroller.
Baltimore Fishbowl asked candidates running in this year’s election to identify the three most important challenges facing Baltimore and the region, and what solutions they support to make progress. We asked candidates to submit a video answering that question, so you can hear their ideas and goals in their own words.
Not all candidates submitted videos, but here are the ones who did:
- Jon Baron – education; workforce development; and public safety
- Peter Franchot – public safety; improving city schools; and infrastructure and jobs
- Doug Gansler – crime; transportation; and business
- John King – public safety; improving quality of life; and guaranteeing every child a world-class public education
Attorney general candidates:
- Anthony G. Brown – crime; cost of living; and environmental justice
- Katie Curran O’Malley – fighting violent crime; protecting a right to choose abortion; and combatting climate change
