"Baltimore is at a pivotal moment that will write the next chapter in our history. I'm running with a sense of urgency not to rebrand Baltimore as so many before me have but instead to actually change Baltimore - especially for those who have been left behind by the actions of my predecessors. I have a solid vision and strategy to make Baltimore the best it's ever been for all and not just the select few"

Baltimore City has not had a Republican Mayor since the honorable Theodore McKeldin (1963-1967). The myopic one-party control of the city has led to community disinvestment and massive population flight over the years. Governor Larry Hogan disrupted the machine and brought level-headed leadership and economic mindfulness to the executive branch. Gov. Hogan serves as a prime example of how Baltimore City can benefit from Republican leadership.
