With over 315 murders in Baltimore for 2017, Governor Hogan isn’t sure of Mayor Pugh’s crime strategy so he will introduce his very own.
On Tuesday, he shared with reporters that he’s just “not sure” of what Pugh’s plan to reduce crime in the city is but he’s confident in the work of our police commissioner, Kevin Davis.
“That’s a real tough question, because I’m not sure what the mayor’s plan is to fight violent crime in Baltimore City. I don’t know that there is a plan,” he said.
Via a statement, Mayor Pugh says that her and the Governor have a “great working relationship” and that he has promised funds for laptops and updated police cruisers.
“We are certain that if the governor has additional questions or concerns he will address them directly with Mayor Pugh,” says a statement released by city officials.
What is the governor’s plan to reduce the crime/murder rate in Baltimore? He says next week, he will issue his strategy.
