Working for a better Baltimore
According to resolution No. 20-24 amending the City Charter to provide for the removal from office of certain City elected officials. The bill provides that by a three-fourths vote the City Council may remove a council member, the Council President, the Mayor or the Comptroller for incompetency, misconduct in office, willful neglect of duty or felony or misdemeanor in office on charges brought by the Mayor, the City Council Committee on Legislative Investigations or by the Inspector General. Notice and an opportunity to be heard before the City Council are required.
As such, Councilman Conaway, we are asking you to hold a public meeting to hear the evidence and do your sworn duty and investigate the concerns of the citizens of Baltimore City regarding the misdeeds of several elected officials. Among the issues to be examined:
Whether Mayor Scott- has failed to do his duty to protect the physical and financial well-being of the citizens of Baltimore.
Whether Council President Nick Mosby- has a conflict of interest in serving the needs of Baltimore residents, whether he has failed to address specific public concerns, and questionable policy legislation of personal benefit in direct contradiction of the public good.
Whether Councilwoman Sharon Middleton- has a conflict of interest in serving the needs of Baltimore residents, failed to address specific public concerns, and questionable policy legislation of personal benefit in direct contradiction of the public good.
Whether Councilman Stokes-has failed to execute his duties as a chairman over education
Whether Councilman Dorsey- has committed ethics violations in the form of behavior in support of criminal activities
It is becoming clear that city leaders are not addressing the needs of Baltimore City. While crime is out of control in this city, it is equally criminal that elected officials are not making the city any safer. As such, citizens now have to take it upon ourselves to help end violence in the city.
As such we plan to:
1. Organize community patrols in conjunction with community organizations and business owners.
2. Be visible and vocal at all public meetings and meetings that should be public.
We will continue until:
1. We see a public safety plan enacted with measurable outcomes achieved.
2. Our elected leaders are upholding their sworn duties to serve the public community which has led to a quantifiable increase in the quality of life throughout the City of Baltimore.
Why is this important?
Baltimore is a city in crisis brought on by bad leadership exacerbated by the ineffectual policy during a time of crisis.
