(Baltimore, MD) -- A state delegate is throwing his support behind former mayor Sheila Dixon for Baltimore's 2024 Democratic mayoral primary.

Baltimore City Delegate Sandy Rosenberg endorsed Dixon saying the city needs a mayor who knows that community problems have to be addressed right away, not just during an election year.

“Sheila Dixon has a record of accomplishment, of responsiveness, and it is my pleasure and honor to endorse her and work to help her become the next Mayor of the city", said Delegate Rosenberg.

Four years ago, Rosenberg endorsed current Mayor Brandon Scott.

Dixon officially filed as a candidate on Monday. She holds a campaign kickoff event this evening in Canton.
