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.
Catalina Byrd is the homegrown breath of fresh air that the city needs to change its directions. She has longstanding relationships with community leaders and years of experience bringing resources to the folks who need it most.
