He has the right message at the right time: End the killing and root out corruption.
Dan Rodricks, Baltimore Sun
Our city is at a crossroads. The most difficult jobs in public service took Thiru face to face with how violence, a lack of opportunity, generations of disinvestment, and drug addiction tear communities apart. The time for letting career politicians play musical chairs has passed. Baltimore needs real leadership. Thiru is the only candidate who will enter the race that has served as a federal and city prosecutor. The only candidate who has managed complex issues, from multinational mergers to leading on the legalization of gay marriage between his time as Deputy Attorney General and a Partner at DLA Piper. Thiru embodies the story of Baltimore, and is the one who can and will do what needs to be done to help this city.
As mayor, Thiru will lead the charge against crime and corruption. He will give our kids a fair shot, ensuring universal pre-k and free college at any Maryland institution - from private to trade. Thiru will lead the city into a new economy, one that creates new jobs and attract new industry. One that stimulates growth across the region and one that spends new resources on treating addiction. Our issues in Baltimore are deep rooted and can’t be fixed overnight, but together, we can make Baltimore a city that not only attracts the best talent in the world, but produces the best talent in the world.
And if this sounds like the future for Baltimore you know this city deserves, this isn’t just our campaign, it’s your campaign too.
