Nick Mosby, considering mayoral run, to hold announcement event Sunday

Could a new entry in the Baltimore mayor's race signal the era of a power couple? Councilman Nick Mosby, husband of the city state's attorney, is expected to announce Sunday that he is entering the race for Baltimore City mayor.

Councilman Nick J. Mosby, who is considering a run for mayor, is planning an announcement event on Sunday.

In an email to supporters sent out Tuesday, Mosby uses the tagline: "The best choice for a better Baltimore."


"We're at a crucial crossroads, where we can succumb to the challenges facing Baltimore or elevate this beautiful city, maximizing all its great potential," Mosby wrote. "I know the path I'm taking. Will you join me?"

The event is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 25 at 2 p.m. at Madison Park North.

If he enters the race, Mosby would join an increasingly crowded field in the Democratic primary that includes former Mayor Sheila Dixon, State Sen. Catherine Pugh, and City Councilman Carl Stokes.

Other candidates include Democrats Richard Black, Mack Clifton, Mike Maraziti and Calvin Allen Young III. Republican Brian Charles Vaeth has filed to run, as has Green Party member Bonnie Lane.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is not seeking reelection.
