IMA, July 2015

The Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance met in July of this year as we are approaching election times. I think that we normally do not meet in July.  I personally do not like the idea of not meeting in July, August, or December.  We always continue to have issues and the hot months or holidays do not stop them.

On the way to the meeting, I transferred buses at North Avenue and Charles Street.  There is a wonderful florist on the corner and they own these beautiful birds.

Our guest this month was Brian Hammond who is running for City Council.  He is 34 and resolved to stay in Baltimore City.  He is running for the district currently represented by Bill Henry. Brian said that he is not running against him, but to improve his city.

The IMA invites all candidates to meet with us and we then endorse a candidate.  I attend the meetings to be an informed voter, but I avoid being involved in the politics. 

Two of the topics discussed were the police and vacant houses.  The previous commissioner had been fired by the mayor and the IMA hopes to have an input in the next commissioner.  The mayor subsequently hired Kevin Davis for the post.  He and I happen to have a common friend, but that will not be discussed on this site.
