ANNAPOLIS, MD — Today, Governor Wes Moore continued his statewide Cabinet Meeting Road Tour in Baltimore City. Governor Moore was joined by Lieutenant Governor Aruna Miller at a convening of the administration’s Cabinet to discuss investment in Baltimore—including attracting businesses and entrepreneurs to the city, developing sustainable, good paying jobs for all Baltimoreans, and closing the racial wealth gap. 

“I believe in Baltimore—I believe in its people, its power, and its potential,” said Gov. Moore. “For this to be Maryland’s decade, it has to be Baltimore’s time. This is a new day for Baltimore City and I am grateful to join you in the city we all love.” 

The day began at Parks and People, where Governor Moore joined JPMorgan Chase to announce a new virtual call center training program as part of a broader initiative to expand investment, create new jobs and promote career growth opportunities in Baltimore City. Working with the Baltimore Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, JPMorgan Chase has hired Baltimore-based customer service specialists who will promote financial wellness in underserved neighborhoods.

Following the announcement, Governor Moore hosted the October cabinet meeting at the Shake and Bake Family Fun Center in Baltimore’s Upton neighborhood, welcomed by Baltimore City Mayor Brandon Scott. During the meeting, the cabinet received a presentation from Innovation Works, a collaborative resource network that connects neighborhoods, entrepreneurs, social innovation assets, and investors to build sustainable neighborhood economies in Baltimore.

Governor Moore and the Moore-Miller Administration cabinet then joined Baltimore Homecoming to deliver the keynote address for their annual conference at Rye Street Market, located in the heart of the Baltimore Peninsula. Baltimore Homecoming is mobilizing a network of Baltimore’s most accomplished natives to invest in the city and to connect Baltimoreans from across the world with leaders and innovators to spark new collaborations and drive new investment in Baltimore’s future.

Lieutenant Governor Miller and cabinet members continued with a bus tour led by Mayor Scott, with stops at the Baltimore Convention Center, the Inner Harbor, and Harlem Park. At each stop, the lieutenant governor and cabinet members received briefings about Harbor Place development, housing vacancy strategies, and the Red Line project.

“More opportunities for Baltimore means more opportunities for all of Maryland,” said Lt. Gov. Miller. “I am so grateful to bring today’s Cabinet Meeting Road Tour to Baltimore today, and to highlight and celebrate the businesses, investments, developments and most importantly, the people, who make Charm City extraordinary.”
