Policies: A New Way Forward

Building Public Safety in Baltimore: Holistic Crime-Reduction Strategy

The violence our city continues to experience is what motivated me to become a public servant as a young man from Park Heights.

I am running for Mayor to transform our city’s approach to crime reduction, moving us from being focused solely on law enforcement to a comprehensive, holistic approach to public safety that centers public health. 

We cannot arrest or prosecute our way out of this problem. We must stay grounded in the immediate steps we can take today — getting repeat violent offenders off the streets, implementing a group violence reduction strategy, and stopping the flow of illegal guns — while also addressing the root causes of crime.

Read my comprehensive public safety plan: Building Public Safety in Baltimore: An All-Hands-On-Deck Approach to Fighting Crime in Our City.

Transparency and Accountability: Restoring Trust in City Government

In recent years, two Mayors have resigned following revelations of criminal conduct while in office. We should expect public officials to meet the highest of ethical standards and set an example for honesty and integrity; sadly, too many have met the lowest in our city.

Part of our city’s comeback story must be rebuilding the public trust. As Mayor, I will introduce concrete and measurable initiatives aimed at restoring faith between the city and its leaders. Having an honest, transparent government characterized by integrity is not just the right thing to do, but the most effective way to run a city.

Supporting Baltimore During and After

As Council President, I have led the way on communicating critical public health information about the coronavirus and continue to be accessible to the concerns of residents.

Because information is changing quickly and coming out from multiple sources, I created a Baltimore COVID-19 Asset Map so residents can locate food sites, special grocery store hours, and health care clinics near them. This map was recognized by the Harvard Kennedy School as a best practice in local government response to the global public health pandemic.

In April, I released a plan to provide for Baltimore's public health and economic wellbeing, as well as the immediate needs of residents and businesses.


Growing up in Park Heights, Brandon Scott watched as gun violence and drugs tore his city and his friendships apart. His mother told him that if he wanted change, he had to do it himself, so Scott took on the job of City Council President. Now, Scott is running for mayor because the status quo just won’t work. He is fighting to end gun violence, restore the public’s trust in government, and change Baltimore for the better.
