'Sad day' for Baltimore and Dixon, O'Malley says
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) issued a statement following Mayor Sheila Dixon's conviction Tuesday calling it "a sad day for the people of Baltimore and Mayor Dixon personally."
Dixon (D), who in 2007 succeeded O'Malley as mayor of Baltimore, was convicted by a jury on a single charge she took gift cards intended for the city's poor.
"It is more important than ever, during this difficult time, that everyone who cares about Baltimore stays focused on reducing crime in our neighborhoods, improving our schools, creating jobs and otherwise serving the people who live and work in Baltimore," O'Malley said in a statement released by his office.
