There are opportunities here for our elected state leaders if they support the city’s efforts. Gov. Larry Hogan will demonstrate that he wants Baltimore to reclaim its vitality as the financial, professional, religious and cultural hub of Maryland and boost his national reputation. Attorney General Brain Frosh will use his litigation skills to aid the city while he continues his suits against President Donald Trump. Comptroller Peter Franchot can put Pimlico and the Preakness next to Maryland breweries on his list of favorite causes.
