Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, August 21, 2015
Earlier this week, I officially made a change in the leadership of the Baltimore Police Department. It was a difficult decision, but one that I thought was best for our city.
With the first day of school right around the corner, we must make sure all of our children will “Be Ready, Be There, and Stay There!”
To grow our city, we have to find innovative ways to attract new residents, while giving those already here more reasons to stay.
For many Baltimore City residents, gaining access to quality, nutritious food can be an insurmountable challenge. Approximately 1 in 5 Baltimore City residents face some sort of food access barrier.

As we celebrate our nation’s independence this 4th of July weekend, we should also take time to honor Baltimore’s rich and vibrant history.
School is out, summer break is here, and we are already feeling the heat here in Baltimore!
Since my time as city council president, and now as mayor, my guiding mantra for Baltimore City has been “Better. Safer. Stronger.”
This past Sunday, I joined members of Baltimore’s faith community for an annual tradition, the Blessing of the City.
