4 candidates vie for 2 seats in Baltimore city’s first school board election

October 12, 2022

While school board elections have become politically polarized in many districts across the country, Baltimore City’s four school board candidates have surprisingly closely aligned views. In fact, the similarities in viewpoints so outweigh the differences that the common refrain — almost a joke ― at their Oct. 3 debate was that they believe any one of the four would be good additions to the school board. Its members are now all appointed, but city voters next month will get a chance to elect school board members for the first time. After the debate, one attendee suggested that whoever loses the Nov. 8 election should just apply to be appointed by the mayor for an appointed seat on the 10-member board.
