Mayor Jack Young's Inauguration

Bernard C. "Jack" Young has served on the Baltimore City Council since 1996, representing Baltimore's second district. Mr. Young became City Council President following Stephanie Rawlings-Blake taking over as mayor due to the indictment of Sheila Dixon. But just over a month ago, Young was named acting mayor because of the leave of absence by Mayor Catherine Pugh. When Catherine Pugh resigned just a week ago, Bernard C. "Jack" Young was fully vested as mayor of the city.
As a result, we now have 35 year-old Brandon Scott serving as our City Council President! Elected at the age of 27, Brandon is the youngest person ever elected to the new single member district City Council. Brandon was born and raised Baltimore growing up in Park Heights. As a proud Baltimorean, Brandon Scott is a graduate of MERVO High School and St. Mary's College of Maryland.
The Baltimore Times' wishes the best of luck to these two in their new positions.
