Bmore Local Presents Meet & Greet With Otis Rolley
Meet Mayoral Candidate Otis Rolley
Friday July 1.
7:00PM. Atomic Books.
3620 Falls Rd. MAP IT
From the start of his engagement in Baltimore’s 2011 Mayoral Race, Otis Rolley has been taking about a sustainable Baltimore. In an interview on Go Green Radio in January 2011, Rolley explained how, if elected mayor, there will be a shifting of priorities from chasing after Fortune 500 companies to “recognizing the strength and long term sustainability” of small businesses in Baltimore. He also talked about the importance of architectural preservation and a holistic approach to governing a city that focuses on public health, parks and schools, a city’s walkability, access to quality foods, among other things.
Friday, July 1st, Bmore Local invites you to celebrate First Friday at Atomic Books and meet mayoral candidate Otis Rolley. Otis will speak briefly about his plans for Baltimore, followed by some informal conversation. Light refreshments will be served.
Don’t forget, the Baltimore Mayoral Primary election is on September 13, 2011. The last time a Republican was elected as mayor of Baltimore was 1963. In recent years, the election has been considered to have been decided during the primary election.

Foraging For Food In Druid Hill Park
From the Baltimore Parks and People Foundation:
Urban Foraging Tour of Druid Hill Park
June 11, 2011 — 9:00am – 12:00pm
Food from Druid Hill Park? What!? Yes, indeed you can find food right in the City’s urban parks. Tour the park with forager, committed locavore, botanist, and author Leda Meredith. Leda will be sharing her wisdom and teaching us how to identify edibles in the urban terrain. At the end of the foraging walk, we will have a Q & A with Leda as we taste treats made with wild edible ingredients.
We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and bring a bag lunch, water, a pen and paper, and perhaps a camera to record the plants you’ve found.
We will meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Disc Gold Course in Druid Hill Park. Click here for a map.
The Cost for this event is $15.
To RSVP, please email Alex Kraus or call her at (410) 448-5663 ext. 119.
