Banner political notes: Water tests; Schifanelli meets future voters

September 12, 2022

Democrat Wes Moore was first to react, issuing a statement Tuesday evening that supported Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott and acknowledged “the importance of partnership between Baltimore City and the state in responding to crises like this one.” Scott and city leaders have drawn criticism for perceived delays in warning residents about the contaminated water. Scott has said that the city sounded the alarm as quickly as they could after city and state officials confirmed water samples tested positive for E. coli bacteria.
