BALTIMORE — He officially took over as Mayor two months ago, after Catherine Pugh resigned.

Mayor Jack Young originally said he had no interest in running in 2020 when the rest of his term is up; that may no longer be the case.

During his weekly press conference, he says he's considering a run for Mayor.

"Things change," Young said." I have a right to change my mind, and I have a right to keep my options open."

So far, Thiru Vignarjah, who ran for Baltimore City's State Attorney and lost is the only candidate to announce he is running for Mayor in 2020.
