This is not who I am. Martin Knott does not speak for me, or for my campaign.

I disavow his statements. These are not my values or the values of those who work with me.

From day one, our campaign has been about every Baltimorean - Black, White, Latinx, and Asian.

We are committed to inclusion, dismantling structural racism, and creating opportunity for everyone across our city.

Every day, we reach out to all voters, and we are so grateful to the broad coalition that has been moved by our message.

While we had no involvement or prior knowledge of this, we deeply apologize to our supporters and every Baltimorean.

I will continue to work every day to earn your trust and support.
