(Baltimore, MD) -- Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott is reaching out to several other Democrats running for mayor to discuss a debate schedule ahead of the May 14 primary election.

In a letter to Sheila Dixon, Thiru Vignarajah and Bob Wallace, the mayor says Baltimore residents deserve to hear a direct comparison of the candidates' records and visions for the future of the city.

The mayor says he's open and eager to take part in a reasonable number of debates hosted by established, and impartial media partners from across the city.

The mayor says he's hopeful that the respective campaigns can meet to discuss the parameters and set a framework as soon as possible.
