Today, at 12 noon, with just under 100 days to go before the Primary Election on May 14th, former Maryland Deputy Attorney General Thiru Vignarajah will formally file with the Board of Elections to have his name on the ballot as a Democratic candidate for Mayor of Baltimore, striving to become the first Mayor in Baltimore history that relies solely on public financing.
Accompanied by a few supporters and family members, Vignarajah will be available to talk with press at 12 noon outside the Board of Elections at 417 E. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD 21218. Vignarajah will emphasize several of his signature issues beyond fighting crime and corruption — free college, reducing property taxes, climate change, and Harborplace. He will also stress why the election debate so far between which is the lesser of two evils, corruption or incompetence, is not a debate worthy of Baltimore.
Finally, Vignarajah, a former Supreme Court clerk for Justice Stephen G. Breyer and federal prosecutor in Maryland, will comment on yesterday’s Supreme Court argument and the Special Counsel’s commendable decision not to bring charges against President Joe Biden.
