BALTIMORE — A blueprint for Baltimore.

Tonight, it was the basis for a mayoral forum at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum. The community got a chance to ask candidates about the issues that concern them the most.

There were 24 candidates in attendance at the forum tonight.

24 mayoral candidates took the stage to address issues facing Baltimore and how they plan to fix.

“I heard a very great element of listening to community, empowering community and uplifting community.”

Voters thought the candidates did a good job discussing the problems plaguing the city.

“Crime rate is extremely high. There are a lot of broken homes and some of the candidates really talked about getting into those homes, understanding what those families are needing," one voter said.

The questions posed to the candidates centered around the Blueprint for Baltimore survey, one that received thousands of responses from the people of Baltimore focusing on issues such as crime, housing, food deserts, economic development and much more.

This was the first Blueprint for Baltimore Mayoral forum, the next one will be at the War Memorial on April 16.
