Baltimore City elicits genuine pride from its residents. Every neighborhood is unique, and generations of families have stayed here because they were not willing to give up on this great city. After decades of population decline, Baltimore is finally growing again. We did not get here by accident, nor did we get here by thinking small. I am determined to grow Baltimore by continuing to build projects that will sustain Baltimore well into the future. Thousands of local jobs are being created through projects like the recently opened Horseshoe Baltimore Casino.

Pandora soon will add its logo to the city's skyline as the company relocates its regional headquarters for the Americas and about 250 employees to Baltimore from Columbia by early 2015. The Danish jeweler known for its charm bracelets announced Thursday that it will lease five floors of the building at 250 W. Pratt St. with rights to place its bright-white logo on two sides of the skyscraper, easily visible from the stands at Oriole Park at Camden Yards .

When I viewed "Coal Country," a film by Mari-Lynn Evans and Phylis Geller at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in downtown Baltimore, I knew I would be a part of an effort to change the way Baltimore breathes. That evening, I shared that my tonsils and adenoids were removed and the difficulty I had most of my life with them. Having them removed made breathing a lot better. However, the quality of the air did not change. I now live in an area of Baltimore County (Dundalk) that is primarily industrial and is grossly affected by environmental pollution.
