BALTIMORE'S MARILYN MOSBY IS YOUNGEST CHEIF PROSECUTOR IN ANY MAJOR AMERICAN CITY

At 35, Baltimore city state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby is the youngest chief prosecutor in any major American city. When she decided to run for her current office, she reached out to community activists, politicians and business leaders, eager to share her ideas. Almost all of them, she said, discouraged her from seeking election. She recalled during a speech on Sunday, “I was told I was too inexperienced, that I couldn’t raise enough money, that my decision to run could not only disrupt but potentially destroy my husband’s political career.” Mosby ignored the advice and was propelled to victory.
