In reviewing the article on Mayor Catherine Pugh marking her actions, I read about a lot of "plans" but no substance behind them ("Pugh confronts schools deficit, high crime in first 100 days as mayor," March 11). How about presenting one particular plan and the steps to alleviate the particular problem, the money required to complete the plan and most importantly, where the money is coming from?
Pugh Chief of Staff Tisha Edwards' statement, "when there's a murder, that's an employment problem," is definitely "La La Land" thinking. Guess what, Ms. Edwards, murders are also committed by people who are employed. I'm happy that city cabinet members are taking bus tours of East and West Baltimore. I'm sure that will accomplish a lot; I'm just not sure what. Talking a good plan is easy as we now see. Results are what count.
