Baltimore mayor will not seek re-election

BALTIMORE (AP) – A Maryland state senator who’s running for Baltimore mayor says she’s surprised that Mayor Stephanie Rawligns-Blake won’t seek another term.

Democratic Sen. Catherine Pugh says she considers Rawlings-Blake a friend and “a mayor who has done what she thought was best for the city during her tenure.”

But Pugh, who represents west Baltimore, says the city’s next mayor needs to be “a visionary leader” who’ll focus on what Baltimore should look like 10 years from now.

Rawlings-Blake said Friday she won’t seek another term so she can focus her energy on preparing the city for the trials of six police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray, among other consequences of Gray’s death from an injury suffered in police custody.
