Your conduct on the campaign trail shows voters where your commitments are for transparency, accountability and ethics.
Highlight democracy issues -- voting rights, open government and transparency, ethics and accountability -- in your platform, campaign materials, website and stump speeches, drawing connections between democracy and other issues you discuss that are important to Baltimore City voters.
Democracy for All
Leading Baltimore City means leading the way for strong, equitable, accessible, and representative democracy for every Baltimorean.
Adequately fund the Baltimore City Office of the Inspector General to ensure they can fully and capably staff the Ethics Board, providing for much needed oversight. Currently, there is no budget for ethics enforcement and only shared staff in addition to the volunteer Board are available to investigate complaints regarding ethics violations.
Provide public with analysis of all legislation being considered, ensuring that analysis is independent and provide explanation on what the bill would day - making it easier for the public to understand. Also include an equity analysis, similar to that done in Montgomery County, that looks at impact on Baltimore City residents.
