The most well-known of the candidates running for Baltimore mayor is the youngest of them all, and yet the most experienced, politically. At 36, Brandon Scott is the youngest candidate in the race for Baltimore mayor. He's a man who has all but grown up before our eyes. He was the youngest person to be elected to the Baltimore City Council at age 27. He took to the streets as co-founder of the anti-violence group, 300 Men March and rose to become City Council president in the wake of the Catherine Pugh scandal.
