Via Press Release:
Governor Hogan: “For The Good of the City, Mayor Pugh Must Resign”
ANNAPOLIS, MD — Governor Larry Hogan today called for Mayor Catherine Pugh to resign as Mayor of Baltimore:
“On April 1, I directed the state prosecutor to investigate the disturbing allegations surrounding Mayor Catherine Pugh’s questionable financial dealings with the University of Maryland Medical System. Today, agents for the FBI and the IRS executed search warrants at the mayor’s homes and offices.
“Now more than ever, Baltimore City needs strong and responsible leadership. Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead.
“For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign.”
Governor Hogan was not the only one calling on the Mayor to resign today:

You have to believe that after the FBI and IRS raids on multiple locations…there is little chance that the Mayor returns to office:
