Mayor Scott's Statement on General Election Results

BALTIMORE, MD. (Wednesday, November 9, 2022) - Mayor Brandon M. Scott released the following statement in response to the 2022 General Election results.

"I want to extend my sincerest congratulations to Governor-Elect Wes Moore, Comptroller-Elect Brooke Lierman, Attorney General-Elect Anthony Brown, and our entire Baltimore City Delegation on their victories in the 2022 General Election. This is a group of trailblazers! Not only do we have our first Black Governor, but we also have our first Indian-American Lt. Governor, first Black Attorney General and first female Comptroller. For the first time in eight years, Democrats control Annapolis. More than that, this is a group of elected officials who care deeply about Baltimore, who have roots here, and who - like me - want to see our city thrive.

I also want to recognize the new faces fighting for Baltimore in Annapolis: Delegate Elizabeth Embry representing the 43rd District, Delegate Jackie Addison and Delegate Caylin Young representing the 45th District, and Delegate Mark Edelson representing the 46th District. For the first time in years, we have a new State's Attorney-Elect in Ivan Bates and a new Sheriff in Sam Cogen. We'll also learn who the inaugural At Large members of our Board of Education are in the near future. And lastly, for the first time in over a hundred years, we now have local control over our police department.

This is an incredible team of dedicated public servants. I could not be more excited to hit the ground running and continue to forge a new path forward for Baltimore and for underserved communities throughout Maryland. We will work together, with unprecedented levels of unity and commitment, to ensure a bright future for all Marylanders - regardless of race, gender, socio-economic status, or zip code. History has been made, and now is the time to begin the real work.

After the Primary Election, I said that this General Election was too important for us to stay home and I am happy to say that voters across the state turned out in droves to make sure that their voices were heard. I want to thank everyone who came out and voted for real, meaningful progress across the board. This bright future would not be possible without your participation in our democracy."
