I'm proud to stand with leaders from across Southeast Baltimore to endorse Ivan J. Bates, Esq. to be Baltimore's next State's Attorney. People have told me it would be politically prudent to stay out of this race. But this isn't a moment for politics. This is a moment for public safety. Our city is hurting. Leaders need to step up and speak up.

Here's why I support Ivan: Too many victims of violence have been ignored or dismissed. When I raised a concern about a possible murder in my District, I was told by staff of the SAO that I was being a "Bad partner."

As documented by the The Baltimore Sun and The Baltimore Banner the State's Attorney's office is massively understaffed. We are hemorrhaging talent. I've been told by many former prosecutors that they would love to come back, but they will only work for one person: Ivan Bates.

Ivan will rebuild the broken relationship between the State's Attorney's Office and BPD. We need prosecutors and police working together. AND he will hold corrupt cops accountable. He defended the victims of the Gun Trace Taskforce. He will take bad officers off our streets.

Ivan will finally free Keith Davis.

Keith will become the 2nd most tried man in America. In a violence crisis, we have wasted far too many resources keeping him incarcerated. Ivan understand's that these trials are no longer in the interest of justice. It's time to Free Keith.

Finally: Character matters. I've watched Ivan operate with integrity when the cameras are on, and when the cameras are off. We've talked a lot about the world we hope to build for our children. While we may not agree on every policy, I know Ivan is the right man for this moment.
Does The Banner have plans to cover the Orioles and Ravens closer (game by game)? Honestly the sports coverage is the only thing stopping me from cancelling The Sun & subscribing to the BB.

“Grief is like a lake inside your body you can’t swim out of, suffocating and lonely.”

Prolonged grief is now being classified as a mental illness. Dr. Daniel Hoover, a clinical adolescent psychologist at Kennedy Krieger and widow, spoke to The Baltimore Banner about this change and what prolonged grief feels like.
Maryland citizens who have made a choice about who they want as their next governor, or person in congress, or any of the scores of other public offices up for election this year, have started voting in the party primary -- either in person or by mail or dropbox. They have until 8 p.m. July 19 to vote.

On the Record talked with Pamela Wood of The Baltimore Banner and WYPR's Rachel Baye to get their sense of the divergent ways Republicans and Democrats look at the world, the economy and the primary election already underway.
I wrote about kids for The Baltimore Banner and that how you feel about the issue is determined by how you see them as people. Or if you see them as people.
