BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Comedian Bill Cosby lends his star power to a local man aiming to take Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s job.

Cosby attended a campaign fundraiser for Otis Rolley Tuesday night at the Tremont Grand downtown.

Rolley served as former chief-of-staff for former Mayor Shiela Dixon.

Cosby said he admires Rolley’s story, rising to a position of prominence after a childhood spent in poverty.

Campaigns are now gearing up for the next mayoral election in the fall of 2012.

    Bill, we love our mayor. She is brilliant, has proven her strengths in the most difficult of times and her integrity is unmatched. Your guy may be a good man but you don’t change horses when you know you are riding a champ.

  2. Owings Mills says:

    Anyone who was affliated with former mayor Sheila Dixon let alone her chief-of-staff should not be elected to mayor.

    Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, keep fighting the good fight. You’re doing a great job.
