Clean Water Action of Maryland endorsed a group of pro-environment candidates for the Baltimore City primary election. These candidates fared well and will likely change the dynamic of the City Council on environmental issues. Clean Water Action won 8 out of 11 of its Primary Election races in Baltimore City. This included the City Council President Bernard ‘Jack’ Young, who was elected with 75 % of the vote, and new-comer Nick Mosby, who upset two-term incumbent Belinda Conaway.
Nick Mosby pledged to “…fight to improve the quality of life for the hard-working citizens and children of this great city…and create policies that provide sustainable solutions to improve the environmental health of our communities.”
