33, Candidate, Baltimore state's attorney
Marilyn J. Mosby sees a path toward decreasing Baltimore's rising violence: a prosecutor who is visible in the community, who establishes trust with potential witnesses to upend intimidation tactics. She plans to challenge State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein in 2014. A former assistant state's attorney, Mosby now works in insurance fraud. She's also a Boston native married to her college sweetheart, City Councilman Nick Mosby, and a mother of two. As a prosecutor, Mosby had an 80 percent conviction rate and said she knows the place she'd start if given a chance to lead Baltimore's prosecution efforts: "It's the same violent repeat offenders that are driving all the havoc in our neighborhoods."
