Bringing federal solutions for local problems during pandemic

Economist Anirban Basu brings sage wisdom and some real ideas and concepts for bringing back revenue and stimulating industry in the aftermath of this COVID-19 crisis.

We have seen him all over Baltimore as the newest face in fighting crime and reducing guns and making our city better but this was our first chance to get to know police commissioner Michael Harrison at Faidley’s in Lexington Market just before the holiday.

His legendary stories from New Orleans are where our three-part conversation begins but we’ll have nearly 90 minutes of conversation about the consent decree, policing in the 20th century and how his Crime Reduction & Departmental Transformation Plan are expected to work in the coming days.

As always on Baltimore Positive, we asked a lot of questions and learned a lot.

We have taken some time this month to add some “holiday bonus” editions of Baltimore Positive that will be coming your way into December with Marty Schwartz, Debbie Phelps and Isaac Hametz and  in addition to our long-form chats with Baltimore City police commissioner Michael Harrison, Speaker of the House Adrienne Jones and the incomparable Wes Moore to start 2020 with bonus positivity.

Nestor and Don are also just released a 100th episode retrospective on Baltimore Positive.

We’d be “thankful” this holiday season if you subscribe to Baltimore Positive and make it a part of your weekly routine!
