Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young swore into office Tuesday the City Council’s newest member Danielle McCray to represent residents in Northeast Baltimore.
She lives in the Waltherson neighborhood and is a former aide to Scott. McCray worked in Scott’s council office for five years researching policy matters and providing constituent service. As a council member, her salary will be about $70,000.
“I’m honored to be nominated by members of my community and confirmed by the City Council to represent Baltimore’s 2nd District on the City Council,” she said in a statement. “The communities within the 2nd District know me well; as a constituent and legislative aide working in this office, I’ve poured everything I have into everything I’ve done, treating every constituent matter as if it were my own.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue providing world-class constituent services and leadership on crucial policy matters in the areas of public safety, education, and equitable economic growth.”
