EPISODE 16: Donald Fry of Greater Baltimore Committee discusses role of organization in our town

At Baltimore Positive, we are here to learn.

Ask questions. Demand answers. Seek truth. Gain clarity.

This week’s guest is Donald Fry of the Greater Baltimore Committee, whose group has for years inspired and enacted positive change in our city for business and development and jobs.

In our first of many installments from legendary Faidley’s Seafood Market at the World Famous Lexington Market, former Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler and local media pundit Nestor Aparicio tackle many of the issues involving the downtown business community and its future with the GBC.

For six decades, the Greater Baltimore Committee – the region’s premier organization of business and civic leaders – has been a leading voice for the business community on issues relating to economic growth, job creation, workforce development, transportation and quality of life.

The GBC was organized on Jan. 5, 1955 as an action committee designed to mobilize the commercial, industrial and professional leadership of Baltimore to bring about tangible and rapid improvements in the community.

Mohler and Aparicio caught up with Fry to see where the GBC is in 2019 and how it can continue to be a part of moving Baltimore forward under its next leadership.

This week we return to State Fare in Catonsville at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday to discuss a wide range of Baltimore Positive issues and history with longtime Maryland journalist and political biographer C. Fraser Smith, who has a new book coming this fall.

And be sure to circle Thursday, June 20th as we return to Faidley’s to discuss the future of Baltimore with current Mayor Jack Young.

We appreciate all of the feedback on the first month of Baltimore Positive.

Just like Baltimore itself – the best is yet to come!
