Baltimore Government
 
 
 

Baltimore is an independent city – not part of any county. For most governmental purposes under Maryland law, Baltimore City is treated as a county-level entity. The United States Census Bureau uses counties as the basic unit for presentation of statistical information in the United States, and treats Baltimore as a county equivalent for those purposes.

Baltimore has been a Democratic stronghold for over 150 years, with Democrats dominating every level of government.

Grassroots pressure for reform, voiced as Question P, restructured the city council in November 2002, against the will of the mayor, the council president and the majority of the council. A coalition of union and community groups, organised by ACORN, backed the effort.

The Baltimore City Council is now made up of 14 single member districts and one elected at-large council president.
