Baltimore mayor focuses on public safety in 2022 State of the City address
So here in town City government is on the move again as City hall is now open after two years and and one of the order of business was mayor Brandon Scott’s State of The City Address. one where he spoke to things such as public safety, supporting Baltimore’s Youth, transportation, city resources and infrastructure, pay equity and saving the inner harbor.
He also talked about his vision for Baltimore’s future and mentioned that his administration will be changing the way city government operates.
The Mayor said “Baltimore, let’s be honest. When I came into office, city government was broken and rotten to the core. From years of dysfunction to turmoil and misplaced focus. We had to start from scratch and build new systems from the foundation up. No longer putting new windows on a house with no roof. But together, we are paving a new path forward for our city and the proof of that is evident. We’re resilient, we are proud, and we will win against all odds.”
And we all can agree we want a better Baltimore.

New news on the social media platform Twitter. they have a new board member and its the richest person in the world, Elon Musk, and just bought a 9.2 share of the company and got appointed to Twitters board of Directors.
After news broke he jokingly or maybe not tweeted Do you want an edit button?
Well it looks like it could be in the works as Twitter announced that is working on adding an edit button to the platform and will be testing out in the next few months. The plan is to allow users a chance to fix any typos or errors in a tweet without sacrificing any replies, retweets, or likes it’s already accrued.
And for fat finger people like myself, that could be very handy.
