McIntosh tells us what a leads an art teacher into Baltimore politics



In keeping with our theme of local issues and local solutions, it was our pleasure to welcome Madame Chair Maggie McIntosh to our set at Faidley’s Seafood in Lexington Market for a spirited three-part about serving Baltimore and our future.

McIntosh has served in the Maryland House of Delegates since 1992 and we were delighted to bring her three decades of service and local political wisdom to our airwaves.

We’ll get into her enduring fight for the LBGTQ community and her fight for Kirwan and education reform but first we’ll begin with her first career as an art teacher in Baltimore City Public Schools and her work with Senator Barbara Mikulski.

We have taken some time this month to add some “holiday bonus” editions of Baltimore Positive that will be coming your way in December with Debbie Phelps, Cheryl Bost, Mike Ertel, Joe Giacalone, Isaac Hametz, Marty Schwartz and Frank Kolarek in addtion to our long-form chats with Thiru Vignarajah and the incomparable Wes Moore.


(Yes…you are invited to join us!)

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21: We are back at State Fare in Catonsville for an powerful doubleheader with Maryland Speaker of The House Adrienne Jones at 10 a.m. and Baltimore City Schools C.E.O. Sonya Santelise at 11:30 a.m.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12: New Baltimore police commissioner Michael Harrison joins us at Faidley’s Seafood in Lexington Market at noon.

We want to thank all of our sponsors, supporters and friends who have allowed this Baltimore Positive platform and movement to become part of your lives and routine. And thank you for sharing our conversations with your community and world!

Hope to see you around Baltimore soon!
