Despite her upcoming trial, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has announced she is seeking re-election for her job.
In the three-minute-long announcement video, Mosby said she is proud of the work she does, bringing “real reform and meaning progress for Baltimore.”
Mosby would be the third Democratic nominee seeking the position of Baltimore’s state’s attorney and will face candidates Ivan Bates, Roya Hanna and Thiru Vignarajah in the primary.
“Looking forward, there is still so much more work to be done, but I am more confident than ever that Baltimore is on the verge of scripting our greatest chapter ever, and I’m running for re-election as state’s attorney because I love Baltimore and I love our people,” Mosby said in the announcement.” We take whatever is thrown our way and we keep pushing, we keep fighting, we keep moving forward,”
Mosby still faces charges of perjury related to a COVID-19 financial hardship withdrawal and a false statement on a loan application.
Her new trial date is Sept. 19 and she maintains her innocence.
