CALL FOR AN ELECTRONIC MAYORAL CANDIDATES FORUM ON FOOD APARTHEID.

*25% OF BALTIMORE CITY RESIDENTS SUFFER IN A FOOD APARTHEID/DESERT;

*THESE AREAS REFLECT NEGATIVE HEALTH STATISTICS REFLECTED IN THE 2008, 2011 AND 2017 BALTIMORE CITY HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY HEALTH DISPARITY REPORTS;

*NONE OF THE APPROXIMATELY 50 CURRENT CITY ELECTED OFFICIALS, TO OUR KNOWLEDGE, LIVE IN ONE -[MAYOR, COUNCIL PRESIDENT, COMPTROLLER, STATES ATTORNEY, SHERIFF, CLERK, JUDGES, REGISTER OF WILLS, 15 COUNCILPERSONS, 5 STATE SENATORS, 13 STATE DELEGATES];

*5 YEARS SINCE THIS ALARMING FACT HAS BEEN DOCUMENTED AND NEITHER THE CITY OF BALTIMORE, NOR THE BALTIMORE DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION, HAVE SUFFICIENTLY ADDRESSED THIS MATTER;

*WHY ARE THERE SO MANY WEEKLY FOOD GIVE-A-WAYS, DISTRIBUTION SITES, FREE MEALS, MEATS, POULTRY, VEGETABLES, FRUITS, OPEN LIQUOR STORES, ETC.?;

DOES CURRENT ELECTED LEADERSHIP REALLY GIVE A DAMN?

M.H.C.D.C. CALLS FOR A PUBLIC, ELECTRONIC, MAYORAL AND OTHER POSITIONS; WHERE PERMISSIBLE, POSSIBLE AND FEASIBLE; CANDIDATES FORUM, IN 2020. LET'S COME UP WITH A SOLUTION AND END THE RHETORIC.
