This week, U.S. Conference of Mayors President Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Mayor of Baltimore, named Mayor Rick Kriseman to a leadership position within the Conference, appointing him to the Mayors Professional Sports Alliance.

 

Said Mayor Kriseman: “I thank Mayor Rawlings-Blake for entrusting me to this important position.
