“As I said in the beginning, I’m sorry for the mistakes I made that brought my term to an end,” Dixon said in her announcement speech last month. “It is because I had to leave office, that I will work three times as hard to be the next mayor. It is because I had to leave office that I will greet each day with a sense of urgency, holding myself and others accountable — and pressing forward for better action. I believe redemption makes you even stronger especially when you have the love of Baltimore like I do.”
