Our mission is to empower the residents of Baltimore with sustainable economic opportunities that improve the lives of our families and communities. We accomplish this by first raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour and implementing attractive incentives for businesses to come to Baltimore or expand in our City. We need to give the Private sector a platform that makes investing in Baltimore and its people a win-win for all. Our economy will also grow as we continue to commit substantial resources to public education,housing, and infrastructure. As Mayor, I will create jobs and increase the wealth of our City. We will cut job-killing regulations, introduce tax reform to City Hall, and create innovative public/private partnerships with the sole purpose of making life better for ALL of Baltimore’s residents.
