BALTIMORE, Md. (June 25, 2015)—Today, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake issued the following statement regarding Governor Hogan's decision to table current plans for the Red Line in Baltimore City
"I am disheartened that Governor Hogan has chosen to ignore the needs of Baltimore City residents by cancelling current plans for the Red Line. Although the Governor has promised to support economic growth in Baltimore, he cancelled a project that would have expanded economic development, created thousands of jobs, increased access to thousands more, and offered residents better health care, childcare, and educational opportunities. I remain committed to working with my partners in government, the business community, and all our community partners to fight for transit opportunities for Baltimore's residents."
