A majority of Baltimore City Council members accused Mayor Brandon Scott on Wednesday of ignoring community input and failing to be transparent in his redistricting map process. Scott on Monday vetoed a council-approved redistricting map, which automatically allowed his own map to go into effect. In a letter sent to the mayor Wednesday afternoon, Council President Nick Mosby and seven other council members asserted that the map they had narrowly passed late last month addressed the mayor’s concerns that there weren’t enough anchor institutions in certain areas or equalized enough populations across the map.
