There is no more polarizing figure in this 2020 Primary Election on the Democratic side in the crowded race for the next Mayor of Baltimore than Sheila Dixon. We have tried to feature all of the candidates who figure to garner double-digit percentage votes on April 28th over the past six months here at Baltimore Positive and Dixon is our final long form conversation.
Sheila Dixon is no stranger to any Baltimore citizen. Her misdeeds are well documented as is her run twice four years ago to once again become the Mayor of Baltimore. In a poll last week featured in The Baltimore Sun, she is considered a frontrunner to win next month.
We sat down for three chats with Dixon recently at Faidley’s Seafood in Lexington Market to discuss her past, present and Baltimore’s future.
We talked a lot about trust and honesty and transparency. We hope you listen and learn. We certainly did…
This is Part Two with Dixon, where we learned about her history as an educator and community leader in West Baltimore and her rise to become mayor two decades ago. In Part Three, we’ll discuss the future of Baltimore, crime, education, Harborplace and squeegee boys.
No one is covering Baltimore mayoral race better than we are and we appreciate all of our friends sharing our work this week! (It does not go unnoticed!)
Later in the week, we will spend some quality time with Frank Kelly III, who told us about his work with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and lacrosse work throughout the community and at Calvert Hall.
