This petition had 3,752 supporters


The following signers of this petition are writing to demand the immediate resignation or removal from office of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake for gross incompetence and negligence in the performance of her duties as Baltimore City Mayor.

On April 25 during a press conference, the Mayor described her delicate balancing act of protecting police while simultaneously giving “those who wished to destroy, space to do that as well.”

By giving these unlawful citizens room to destroy personal property, the Mayor directly contributed to the destruction and chaos that followed on April 27, 2015. This strategy underscores a complete lack of leadership and experience in handling crisis. As an executive officer, the Mayor is responsible for the preservation of the State and the protection of their constituents.

Article 11 of the Maryland Constitution states that “The Mayor shall, on conviction in a Court of Law, of wilful neglect of duty, or misbehavior in office, be removed from office by the Governor of the State, and a successor shall thereafter be elected, as in a case of vacancy.” (Section 6, Article XI, Constitution of Maryland)[1]

We signers of this petition, the people of Baltimore City, Maryland, and the United States of America come together in demanding that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake immediately resign or be removed from her public office.
