Baltimore Mayor: Sharpton Is ‘Welcome’ in City

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (D) stated that Al Sharpton and “anyone who wants to add to the calls for peace in our city” “is welcome” during a press conference on Monday.

Rawlings-Blake said, “anyone who wants to add to the calls for peace in our city is welcome. I would — if Reverend Sharpton wants to come, if parents want to encourage their children to, you know, act within the law, I met with young people this afternoon, young people who want peace, young people who want justice, they were giving their own suggestions on how young people themselves can add a voice and try to add a sane message, a message that says ‘we don’t — not in our name that you are doing — that you are destroying our city.’ Anybody that wants to be a part of sending that message, I welcome it.”
