"Creating a better Baltimore starts with hardworking city employees who work tirelessly to deliver key services. It is unacceptable that these public servants have to worry about their personal safety while dedicating their lives to move our Baltimore forward.

I ask that you keep the families of the two solid waste workers in your prayers as we gather more details."
