"Everywhere I went, the problem was the same: Poor leadership," he said. "I got results. I'm uniquely qualified to tackle these problems."

His website is abetterbaltimore.org.

Other candidates in the field include former Mayor Sheila Dixon, State Sen. Catherine Pugh, City Councilmen Nick J. Mosby and Carl Stokes, businessman David L. Warnock and lawyer Elizabeth Embry.
