BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Former Mayor Sheila Dixon officially ended her campaign Saturday and congratulated Brandon Scott on winning the Baltimore Mayoral Democratic primary election.

Dixon posted a message on social media. She said, in part:

“We are all in this together. With the current pandemic, protests and a Presidential general election on the horizon, now is not the time for frivolous divisions, but for unity.”

She also thanked all of her supporters and congratulated Scott on winning the Democratic nomination.

Brandon Scott Takes Lead Over Sheila Dixon In Baltimore’s Mayoral Race

“I formally concede and offer my sincerest congratulations to a young man who is a native of this city, a product of our public schools, a young man I have watched grow in public service; a young man I have conversed with on many issues and one who has secured the mayoral democratic nomination.”

Dixon took over as the Mayor of Baltimore in January 2007 when Martin O’Malley was sworn in as governor.   She served out the remaining term before being elected the first female Mayor and Baltimore’s third black Mayor in November 2007.

Dixon resigned as Mayor in February 2010 after she was found guilty on one misdemeanor count of fraudulent misappropriation in connection with an incident where she allegedly took gift cards intended for the poor.

    Crawl back under your rock thief! Who are you going to steal from next? Stealing from the poor makes you a despicable human being…

    Baltimore city residents always blaming Trump for their cities problems yet there were people out there that actually voted for this criminal Dixon. Now you have the Mosby’s 2 cop-hating activist which is a conflict of interest, and go along/get along Brandon Scott as your future Mayor. Don’t worry though you can still blame Trump for all your troubles until 2024. As long as Baltimore City keeps electing activist the crime rate will continue to rise, and businesses will continue to avoid the city.

    Huh? Trump will no longer be the POTUS come January. We can blame him for the poor state of the economy, his race baiting, his largely white failing admin, and the fact he ignored COVID until the end of January and said it was no worse than the flu, could be cured by injecting disinfectants & wearing masks is stupid and we can also blame him for having peaceful citizens in a public park gassed, but I don’t hear anyone blaming him for Baltimore’s problems.

    Trump came to Charm City for his draft dodger pretends to be patriotic photo op at Ft. McHenry, so how bad can it be?
