Baltimore mayor vetoes bill that would make city officials pension-eligible after 8 years instead of 12

December 1, 2022

Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott has vetoed a bill that would make the city’s elected officials eligible for a pension after eight years instead of the current 12. The veto, only Scott’s second since taking office, was delivered Wednesday, shortly after the city’s Board of Ethics implored him via a letter to delay making a decision on the matter until the board could issue an ethics opinion. The board cited a possible violation of the city’s ethics ordinance by the members of the City Council.
