Mayor Scott Vetoes Mosby Redistricting Plan – and Leaves No Room for a Council Override

Mayor Brandon Scott has handed City Council President Nick Mosby a humbling defeat on an issue that became a mounting source of friction between the two – the contours of Baltimore’s new district lines.

Last month, Mosby got the Council to set aside the redistricting plan the mayor had submitted in favor of Mosby’s plan to alter some parts of the 14 Council boundaries to account for population losses or gains in the 2020 census.

Shortly after the start of last night’s Council meeting, Mosby announced that he was informed, via email, that Scott had vetoed the bill.
