Baltimore senate delegation wants Young to lead city council.
The city Senate delegation cited Young’s “work ethic, passion and commitment to Baltimore ”and his “principled leadership” as reasons for their support. The full letter is below.
Young and freshman Councilman William H. Cole IV are the two top contenders for the seat. Young’s considered an independent voice and has a fiery temper. He’s supported Rawlings-Blake on key issues including rejecting Dixon’s most recent budget.
Cole brings Annapolis and federal experience and has developed close ties with Rawlings-Blake, who frequently turns to him to do the legwork on key issues. (For more reading about the Baltimore City Council race see this story.)
Signatories to the letter are: McFadden, Gladden, Conway, Della, Conway, Jones and Pugh.
(TIP: The letter refers to Young by his given first name “Bernard” in some sentences and his nickname “Jack” in others.) Senate delegation's endorsement
