Tonight: Meet the candidates

By now, you have seen the campaign signs posted on homes and businesses. But do you really know who is running for the state’s 46th District Delegation, and their stances on the issues that affect you, your family and your business?

These questions may be answered at a candidate’s forum for the 46th Legislative District, scheduled for Wednesday, May 28, 6-8 p.m., at Patterson Park Public Charter School, 27 N. Lakewood Ave.

Election season is here; the primary election is Tuesday, June 24, and the general election follows on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

All registered candidates hoping to represent our 46th District in the Maryland General Assembly have been invited to the forum; most have confirmed their attendance. Candidates for the State Senate as well as the House of Delegates, Republican and Democrat, will be available to answer residents’ questions in a public setting.

The Maryland General Assembly has a huge effect in the state. The body makes major decisions on many of the issues you see in the Baltimore Guide, including liquor, education, transit, infrastructure, public safety, healthcare and more.

The forum is being held by the League of Women Voters of Baltimore City, and is co-sponsored by the Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance. The Baltimore Guide is assisting in publicizing the forum.

Be an informed voter.
