08/22/07 President of Baltimore City Council Forum

Ooowee!  If you didn't join us last night at the Enoch Pratt Free Library to hear the candidates for President of the Baltimore City Council argue their cases for why they should be elected, you missed out!  I'll be honest; I wasn't thrilled at the idea of working until 9:30.  But I had a great time and was really impressed by a lot of the things the candidates had to say.  Couldn't come?  That's okay; we're replaying the entire debate today, on air.  Tune in to hear Maria Allwine (G), Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (D), Ken Harris (D), Michael Sarbanes (D), and Charles Ulysses Smith (D).  You'll hear their answers to burning questions such as: If you had the power to do so, would you remove the Male/Female sculpture in front of Penn Station?  What high school did you go to?  And of course, we'll talk serious policy issues; the drug problem, vacant homes, schools, taxes, etc. Special thanks to the League of Women Voters of Baltimore City for arranging and hosting the event! Don't miss next weeks forum with the candidates for Mayor of Baltimore City!  Same time (Wednesday, 7pm), same place (Wheeler Auditorium, Enoch Pratt).  Call 410-377-7738 for more information. Listen to the forum! Hour One  Hour Two -Jessica   P.S. Extra points if you can determine exactly where the debate got a little dirty! Poll: Who would you like to see be Baltimore City Council President? Poll: If you had the power to, would YOU remove the Male/Female statue outside of Penn Station?
