Tom's guest is City Council President Brandon Scott, Democratic candidate for Mayor. Mr. Scott was first elected to the Council in 2011 to represent the 2nd District. Prior to that, he worked in the office of then Council President Stephanie Rawlings Blake as her representative in Northeast Baltimore.
In 2018, Jim Shea picked Mr. Scott as his running mate in their unsuccessful bid in the Democratic Gubernatorial primary.
Brandon Scott is 36 years old, which is, BTW, about the same age that Martin O’Malley was when he was elected Mayor, Johnny Olszewski, Jr., the Baltimore County Executive, and Pete Buttigieg, the former Mayor of South Bend Indiana, who ran for President.
