Proud Mom Watches Bernard Young Take Oath of Office

Just In Time For Mother’s Day

Hundreds packed into the War Memorial Building on N. Gay Street on Thursday, May 9, 2019 to see Bernard C. “Jack” Young take the Oath of Office as the 51st Mayor of Baltimore City. Among them was Ida M. Rather, mother of the city’s newest mayor. “I am so proud of my son,” said Rather who witnessed the special moment a few days shy of Mother’s Day. “I thank God for all of my children. All of them are my favorites. I thank God for allowing me to see what I have witnessed here today.”
