State Sen. Catherine Pugh is ready to announce her decision on whether to run for mayor.
Pugh, who currently represents parts of west Baltimore in Annapolis, will make the announcement at Leonard E. Hicks Multipurpose Community Center on North Avenue at 5:30 p.m. on Monday.
She would join several candidates, including incumbent Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who has received several high-profile endorsements but has not formally announced her candidacy or filed.
Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors Vice President Joseph T. “Jody” Landers, former city planning director Otis Rolley and Circuit Court Clerk Frank Conaway have already filed for the Sept. 13 Democratic primary. Councilman Carl Stokes has said he is considering a run, too.
Only one Republican, Vicki Ann Harding, has filed.
