Baltimore comptroller, City Council majority back challenger for sheriff on heels of cutting incumbent’s budget

July 7, 2022

A majority of Baltimore City Council members and Comptroller Bill Henry endorsed sheriff candidate Sam Cogen on Wednesday, upping the ante in the first serious electoral challenge three-decade incumbent John Anderson has faced in years. Nine members of the council — John Bullock, Kristerfer Burnett, Zeke Cohen, Mark Conway, Eric Costello, Ryan Dorsey, Antonio Glover, Odette Ramos and Isaac “Yitzy” Schleifer — are backing Cogen, a former deputy under Anderson who is now seeking to unseat him.
