Baltimore’s Next Mayor Must Possess Varied Path to Ensure Solid Future

Post by: Dan Weller

The latest Baltimore Sun polls have Catherine Pugh as the leader in a Baltimore City mayoral race; a race that is hotly contested and seemingly has a candidate for everyone. From a young political activist who sees a city with a need for a unified voice, to a seasoned veteran state senator who has built a reputation for being “on the front lines,” this election certainly doesn’t lack for a diversified candidate pool.

Familiarity Breeds a ‘No’ Vote

Maryland is in the unique position of having presidential hopefuls within both party primaries. We were curious to see if our local voters’ opinions would be skewed by having a local figure on each side of the aisle during the early stages of the presidential race. It seems this is not the case at least according to our poll.

The New Year’s Prep List

Re-entry is hard. Astronauts will tell you. Adults returning to school will tell you. Preschool teachers will tell you every Monday. There is something about going back to something (no matter how much you love it) that is difficult after a hiatus.

The Holiday Survival Guide in Ten Simple Steps

After 38 years, I have learned very little about the holiday season. The few lessons I have taken away, however, are very useful. It is in the spirit of holiday generosity and giving that I share them with you now.

PoliTrend Tracker Reveals Complex Issues at Play in Baltimore Mayoral Race

We wanted to focus on Sheila Dixon in this most recent poll because the last survey had her as the runaway leader in the race for Mayor. Since she left her office amidst scandal, we wanted to see if that still mattered to voters who are over six years removed from the events of 2009.

The Latest PoliTrend Tracker Results Are In
