Baltimore City’s delegates to Maryland’s General Assembly are joining the long line of lawmakers and groups to call for Mayor Pugh to step down.

The delegates spoke in a press conference Monday night as the General Assembly’s 2019 legislative session ended.

Fourteen City Council members sent a letter to Mayor Pugh Monday morning stating: “The entire membership of the Baltimore City Council believes that it is not in the best interest of the City of Baltimore, for you to continue to serve as mayor. We urge you to tender your resignation, effective immediately.”

On Monday evening during the final day of the 439th session of Maryland’s General Assembly, city delegates took a position on the mayor’s request to return to City Hall and resume her duties.
