"She was one of the best mayors I've ever served with," Clarke said. "She knows people. She cares about them. She's been like that since I first met her. She will help restore a esprit des corps in city government with her energy, her decisiveness and her demands for service. She knows what needs to be done."

Jason Curtis, of Mt. Vernon, said he has worked with mayors Martin O'Malley and Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as well as Dixon.

"I can tell you that Mayor Dixon was the most responsive mayor out of the three," he said. "She answered her phone. She responded to community needs. She was always there for us."

Among the community leaders endorsing Dixon were Betty Bland Thomas of Sharp Leadenhall, Andre Bundley of Forest Park and Geoge Mitchell of Park Heights.
