Ian Schlakman for Baltimore City Council 12th District

Putting People Before Profit

Ian Schlakman for Baltimore City Council District 12

Every month our city finds new ways to give more city services to multi-national corporations. That puts the concerned citizen in a state of constantly fighting against water privatization, bus services being privatized, polluting incinerators being built right next to schools.

Enough is Enough! We need a leader in city hall who will lead the fight against these giveaways and put people before profits.

I am the one candidate in this race that will consistently fight against give aways to large corporations.

I will never pander to corporate interests because I know that the market-based model of growth can't work for our city. When has a developer ever decided that they've profited enough? They never do and they never will. The only way to get what we need for this city is to go after our needs first and give what's left for private investment, not the other way around. 

I have a vision for a Baltimore in which the City Council prioritizes the needs of people - the right to fair wages, quality housing, health care, and basic income - first. 

And I have a plan for winning a $15/hour minimum wage, a Millionaire's Tax, and immediate housing for the city's homeless population. All it takes is the recognition that the people of Baltimore - not the corporations of Baltimore - are what matter. 

Join me as we build two transformational forces - the Socialist movement and the Green Party. Vote Ian Schlakman for City Council, District 12! 

We need your help…

They have the money, but we have the people. If everyone who visits this website joins our movement, there’s nothing we can't accomplish together.
