Ben Jealous discusses economic growth, urban development at Lexington Market
BALTIMORE -- WBFF -- Maryland Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Ben Jealous was in Baltimore on Saturday, touring a familiar neighborhood that he hopes to revive, if voters let him in November.
The former NAACP President was at Lexington Market meeting with business owners and outlining his plan for economic growth and urban development.
In that plan is a call for a $15 per hour minimum wage, initiatives to boost minority and female business ownership and expanding broadband access to rural areas.
He says places like Lexington Market are key to success of the city. Jealous' opponent, Governor Larry Hogan, spent part of the day in Ocean City addressing the Maryland Association of Counties.
