General Election Produces No Surprises in North Baltimore

Democrats continue to dominate city elections.

The races to represent North Baltimore in City Hall weren’t expected to be competitive and they lived up to expectations.

Both Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young easily won their citywide races.

Nick Mosby made his election to the Baltimore City Council in District 7 official. Mosby, who defeated Councilwoman Belinda Conaway in the Democratic primary, beat Conaway’s attempt to win the seat via a write-in campaign.

In District 14 Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke soundly defeated Green Party candidate Douglas Armstrong.

Carl Stokes will hold onto the District 12. Stokes, who was appointed to the seat, defeated Republican Kent Boles Jr. and Libertarian Spencer Scott.

Councilman Bill Henry also defeated Republican Ebony Edwards in District 4.

In District 5 Rochelle “Rikki” Spector, the longest serving member on the council, retained her seat. She faced Republican Ari Winokur.

Councilwoman Sharon Green, D-District 6, Middleton was unopposed.

However a little-known City Councilman (Warren Branch) overcame a surprisingly strong write-in challenge from a well-known former TV reporter (Channel 13's Shannon Sneed) in Baltimore's 13th Councilmanic District after having defeated her in the September Democratic primary by 43 contested votes.

It's pretty pitiful that less than 1 percent of registered voters came out to vote...how do people expect to change things for the better if they don't vote!
