Baltimore Mayor Pugh resigns amid children’s book scandal

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh has resigned following weeks of investigations into a scandal around her self-published children’s books.

In a statement read by her attorney Steven Silverman at a Thursday afternoon press conference, Pugh announced she was stepping down, effective immediately.

“Dear citizens of Baltimore, I would like to thank you for allowing me to serve as the 50th mayor, it has been an honor and a privilege,” read Silverman. “Today I am submitting my written resignation to the Baltimore City Council. I am sorry for the harm that I have caused to the image of the city of Baltimore and the credibility of the office of the mayor.”

Silverman refused to take questions and Pugh was not present. Interim Mayor Jack Young, who was elevated from his role as City Council president when Pugh went on leave last month, will continue to serve in the role. In the statement, Pugh thanked Young for his service and wished him well as her successor.
