Thiru for Baltimore
Thiru Vignarajah is running to be State’s Attorney for Baltimore City. Baltimore, widely known as one of America’s most violent cities, is in dire need of change- a change that starts with progressive crime policy.
Thiru plans to build the most progressive, transparent prosecutor's office in the history of Baltimore. His plan to cut murders in half in 3 years will serve as a blueprint for violent cities in the rest of the country. The Thiru for Baltimore team works hard to deliver Thiru's message to voters and is looking to add additional individuals who are passionate about criminal justice and progressive causes.
