Engaging City Hall

"Seated in the back of the Baltimore City Council’s chambers, wearing shorts and T-shirts — a bit underdressed for the occasion, perhaps — I watched as two of my friends from high school took in their first City Council meeting, dutifully tracking the progress of every bill and resolution being debated. I am proud to be a native Baltimorean, yet I didn’t step inside City Hall myself, or closely follow city politics, until May, when I started an internship with Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young.
