I wasn't really sure what to expect. I only knew that I wasn't going to be as high-strung about the possibility of meeting a Baltimore City Mayor as the day I hightailed out of work about a year ago to rush to City Hall after-hours for a one-on-one interview with former Mayor Dixon about the new Charm City Circulator.
I thoroughly enjoyed hearing Mayor Rawlings-Blake tonight, she connected well with the audience and shared an inspirational story about why she pursued a career in public leadership. She showed a human element that local TV and newspapers haven't really captured (although Evan Serpick did a pretty good job of showing it in the March 2010 issue of Baltimore magazine) and I'm excited to have the opportunity to write about the event for my work. It should be posted within the next couple of days on my work's homepage, which I will link to here.
I should get to bed, I have an earlier than usual day tomorrow -- I'm going to a seminar at a steakhouse off Conway St. before heading to the office. I haven't quite figured out how or why an educational seminar takes place in a steakhouse at 8 o'clock in the morning. If I figure it out tomorrow, I will be sure to share.
