    The city needs to spend less… Period paragraph… Why should anyone who is sane want to pay double the property tax to live there?

    It also needs to get crime under control, 250+ homicides plus assaults, robberies, and the “fun” that happens every night after nightfall…

    The city owns a very large portion of the derelict homes and buildings… Why didn’t they tear them down and use eminent domain ( I am not a fan ) to tear down the ones owned by individuals ?

    As for green spaces and parks… Who will maintain them ? And how long will it be before they attract crime ?

    The school system has received a $ 1 BILLION in school funds and what are the results ?

    The city is also corrupt at every level, I wonder who is siphoning off funds meant to improve the city ?

    As for me, I’ve always found cities ugly and unattractive… Concrete, asphalt, reeking alleyways, crime, grime, poorly maintained streets, etc. I prefer my quiet green county neighborhood…

    1. Absolutely Correct Dale: “It also needs to get crime under control, 250+ homicides plus assaults, robberies, and the “fun” that happens every night after nightfall…”

    2. Then new non-corrupt mayor and city council Leadership, no more quick fixes e.g. casino gambling, grand Prix racing or lotteries !

    3. Then new businesses might come to Baltimore City and bring new jobs!.

    4. Then new or refurbished homes would be needed !

    5. The tax base might just increase over time!

    6. Then kick the troublemakers out of schools at 16 (Gov, O’Malley’s raised the stay in school age to age to 18)

    I am running for mayor and love your input in the comments. I will have many options to consider in lowering taxes, which is a must for our city!
