Baltimore is home to thousands of voters who are also artists, theatre, concert, and museum-goers, and creative workers. They care about core civic issues like public safety and education but their votes will also be strongly influenced by candidates’ positions on arts and culture. Citizen Artist Baltimore (CAB), a broad-based, nonpartisan get-out-the-vote coalition, is communicating these voters’ concerns to the candidates, and plans to mobilize thousands of arts supporters ahead of the Primary Election Day. In January, CAB conducted a series of listening sessions and an online survey with hundreds of voters around Baltimore. The questionnaire below is based on the powerful input shared by listening session participants. The responses featured belong to the new mayor, Catherine Pugh (Democrat).
