We’re following all 14 of the City Council races looking for candidates – could be more than one in a given district – who are committed to the economic recovery and all-inclusive economic growth our city so desperately needs.
To help us – and you, too – we’ve created 14 separate maps, one for each councilmanic district, that show all the Democratic candidates running. The maps give show you how your particular district is defined and will give you the following information for each candidate…
- Candidate Name
- Whether or not he or she is the incumbent.
- The committee’s prior cash balance as of the last campaign finance report.
- The amount raised during the period covered by the report.
- The committee’s current cash balance.
- Coming soon… Whether or not Baltimore Rising is endorsing the candidate.
If you see the letters ALCE (aka “Alice”) under Prior Cash Balance, it’s an acronym that stands for Affidavit of Limited Contributions and Expenditures. It’s the title of a form that candidates fill out if they will not be raising $1,000 or more.
To see a given map, just mouse-over the “Baltimore City Council” menu button above the header and scroll down the list of maps until you find the one you want – or you can click on one of the links at the bottom of this page.
All maps are interactive. You can zoom in and out and blow-up the map to full screen. You can click, hold and slide the district to somewhere else on your screen. Most importantly, you can mouse-over any of the candidate dots to see the name of the candidate and then click on that same dot to see the information we’ve listed above.
Any questions or suggestions? Just email us at Info@BaltimoreRising.org or leave a comment.
As promised, here are links to all the district maps and Democratic candidates…
