A Message from
Mayor Catherine E. Pugh

Baltimore, I want you to know how much I truly enjoy being your mayor! In just a couple short months we have accomplished a great deal. With your help and participation, I can see and feel this City moving forward.

My Cabinet and I go on regular bus tours throughout the City so they can see what I see and fix problems right away. We are setting a new tone and establishing a healthy working relationship between citizens and police officers so that we take control of what happens in our neighborhoods. We are aggressively pursuing job creation and the kind of economic development that will bring prosperity to the whole City and not just a few isolated enclaves.

So please stay engaged and let me know what you think. I care about how you see this City and want to see every neighborhood thrive. With your support and input, I know we will create a better Baltimore!


February 12, 2018 | When the Baltimore Summer YouthWorks registration portal went live, over 1000 youth signed up for summer jobs in just 24 hours! This shows that young people in Baltimore city want to work! That number will only continue to grow so we need the business community to partner with us in hiring, hosting or donating for the 2018 YouthWorks campaign.

All of Us Are Seniors in Training

February 6, 2018 | Today I swore in members of the Senior Commission and two new members on the School Board Commission. Senior citizens are one of our fastest growing demographics so this is a commission that will play a vital role in protecting and making sure Seniors are taken care of in Baltimore.

How We Increase Population in Our City

January 26, 2018 | Earlier this month (January 9th, 2018), the University of Maryland, Baltimore held a kick-off event for their Live Near Your Work program. This is an exciting opportunity because this is a home buying assistance program (for eligible participants) that offers money toward the down payment and closing costs of homes in select Southwest Baltimore neighborhoods. This is in addition to Baltimore's Live Near Your Work Program.

$3 Billion Dollars Worth of Business
