Washington D.C./BALTIMORE, MD – Today, on the first day of early voting in the Maryland Primary Election, People For the American Way announced a five-figure, radio ad campaign on top urban, adult contemporary, news talk and gospel stations along the Baltimore/Washington corridor to support the re-election of incumbent Mayor Brandon Scott.

The new :60 radio ad, titled “Future Choice,” highlights Mayor Scott’s historic record as Baltimore’s youngest mayor in more than a century. Since his election in 2020, Mayor Scott has fought tirelessly to reduce violent crime and invest in families, often in the face of racist and political attacks.

The ad begins airing today and is scheduled to run on five stations – WERQ- FM (92Q), WWIN-FM (Magic 95.9), WLIF-FM (“Today’s 101.9”); WCAO-AM (“Heaven 600”), WBAL-AM NewsRadio, and Urban One’s WOLB-AM – through Maryland’s Primary Election Day on May 14. Early voting for the presidential primary election in Maryland is available between May 2 and May 9.

“Brandon is a phenomenal mayor for the city of Baltimore and a model of progressive leadership for the nation,” said People For the American Way President Svante Myrick. “As a former mayor, I know that Brandon has fought hard to serve all Baltimoreans. From reducing homicides by 20 percent in 2023 to making public safety a top priority to increasing engagement and economic investments in Baltimore youth as part of his youth engagement strategy, Brandon continues to make Baltimore and the state of Maryland proud. A vote for Mayor Scott is a vote for Baltimore’s best and brightest future.”

“Since his days as a Baltimore city council member, Brandon has been at the forefront of social and economic justice for his community,” said People For the American Way National Political Director Markus Batchelor. “Brandon has been a member of the People For family for several years and we know his dedication to public service has not faltered. We have seen, first-hand, Brandon’s passion for building communities that reflect values of freedom, fairness, and opportunity and he has put those values into action as the Mayor of Baltimore.”

The radio ad follows the latest of three Baltimore City mayoral debates between four candidates, including Sheila Dixon, former Baltimore mayor who was convicted for embezzlement in 2010, and forced to resign as part of a plea deal in a corruption case.

The right choice for Baltimore City Mayor couldn’t be clearer.

Brandon Scott is moving Baltimore forward, investing more in Baltimore’s youth than any Mayor before.

He’s reducing crime to historic lows, without mass arrests.

In the face of racist attacks on Baltimore and in our moment of tragedy, Brandon Scott made us proud.

But big-money MAGA Republicans are looking to turn back the clock by supporting his opponent Sheila Dixon

Because they know Brandon Scott is the energetic, progressive, un-bought leader making Baltimore work for all of us.

On May 14, re-elect Brandon Scott for Baltimore’s future.
