Mayor Sheila Dixon

“We have wars here in our city. We should be making strides against drugs and gang violence, but it's something I never hear the presidential candidates talk about.”

— Mayor Sheila Dixon

What a ridiculous and useless non-interview with Sheila Dixon! Why would anyone want to get updates from you when you are so irrelevant? Sheila Dixon is not progressive. It's not about what they say, it's about what they do. She's done nothing to move Baltimore forward in 21 years. She was elected because she is a puppet of the governor and the corrupt financial power moguls that control politicians like her that have no integrity. You failed to mention her numerous ethics challenges as well. Why not paint a true picture of the people you promote as progressive. Look at the plight of the majority population and neighborhoods in Baltimore City? It certainly doesn't look like a city with any true true progressive leadership.

Respectfully, Nicole, I think you've missed the point of the interview.

MayorTV is an opportunity for Mayors to speak about federal urban policy, especially in the context of the presidential campaigns. It's not about the mayors themselves, or how "progressive" they are. It's about what the Mayors think the next president should do to help cities - where 80% of Americans live - to better grapple with the tough challenges that cities face.

Mayors have unique ability to speak to those challenges ... no matter what kind of political labels people impose on them.
