We had a great time attending the 25th annual Mt. Washington 4th of July parade today! The vibrant community spirit was truly on display. The parade not only honored our nations independence but also highlighted the unique charm and camaraderie of our Mt. Washington community. Happy 4th of July, everyone!Image attachmentImage attachment+1Image attachment

Looks great ! Sorry I missed this. Happy 4th of July !!!

Great ! You got around today !

What a terrible spoiled culture we have where we mimic the sound of bombs when real kids are being bombed by American bombs sold to Israel everyday. Not fun when it's a real explosion dropping a building on your head

This Traffic pattern does NOT work. If you go to the fireworks as I do every year, DON’T park on the South Side (Key Highway/ Fed Hill) of the Harbor. You will get stuck in gridlocked traffic. July 4th and New Year’s traffic is diverted onto (very small) Lee street. This causes gridlock. From Lee street cars need to use S Charles street to get to Conway street. A simple solution is to allow all cars to go straight on Light street for one more block to make the left onto Conway. This will alleviate the gridlock that keeps people stuck in traffic.

Although I enjoy the extra time downtown and enjoy seeing the beautiful harbor, sitting in traffic with kids in the car whose bedtime has passed and are kvetching is not enjoyable.

I would like to have some type of traffic enforcement at PIMLICO RD. where it meets Willowglen and Green Meadow. The rate of speed used here is insane! Ppl run the stop sign(s) regularly and now with the random parking all over due to ppl going to the synagogue on Green Meadow the area is dangerous to walk my dog. If the police could sit in this area from 7am-10 on any given day ( especially Friday) I’m sure they would write many tickets for speeding and running the stop sign(s). Please help with this concern before a pedestrian gets hurt or a major collision occurs!! Thank you in advance…..

At least your kids are alive as opposed to the 30,000 Palestinian kids that buildings and bombs dropped on them.

Today someone spray-painted swastikas in front of a Jewish home in the Glen neighborhood. This hate has no place in Baltimore or anywhere else. I am calling on Baltimore Police Department to fully investigate this incident and hold those who did this accountable.Image attachment

Looks like it's was done by a 3 yr old!

it is protected under the first amendment, even though I don't agree with it

Recently the same hateful Antisemitic protests were happening right here in Baltimore City in front of a synagogue in my district. Thankfully Baltimore Police Department was prepared and minimized the impact. Protesting any religion is NEVER ok. Thank you Van Jones for speaking up. ... See MoreSee Less

The 5th district is now home to a pop-up Rec Center at the Public Safety Training Center, located at the corner of Northern Parkway and Park Heights Avenue. This new facility offers a variety of recreational opportunities for the community.

Great Idea Hope There Are Programs For Seniors

So this is how they're covering up the 300 million police training facility where Israel and right wing America teaches police to brutalize minorities? It's got a Rec Center so that's okay?
