Donald Norris, Public Policy, on WBAL and in the Baltimore Sun

Baltimore’s mayoral election will be a referendum on current Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, argued UMBC public policy chair Donald F. Norris, in WBAL’s weekend coverage of the race. The list of candidates continues to grow—now including Otis Rolley III, Joseph T. “Jody” Landers and state Sen. Catherine E. Pugh—but Norris suggests it is Rawlings-Blake’s election to lose, given her political influence and campaign funding. “To the extent that there is an anti-Rawlings-Blake vote, it will be spread among the people running against her,” he argued in the Baltimore Sun, though he also noted, “Voters don’t start paying attention until really close to the election.”
