Political career[edit]

Baltimore City Council[edit]

In 2012 Mosby appeared on the reality show Kitchen Nightmares, presenting Cafe Hon owner Denise Whiting a Baltimore City resolution.[9]

2015 Baltimore Riots[edit]

During the 2015 Baltimore protests following the death of Freddie Gray, Mosby said that the rioting was a "cry for help."[5][10][11] Mosby represented District 7 on the Baltimore City Council, where the worst of the rioting happened.[12][13] He has compared the riots to the 2015 riots in Lexington, Kentucky, after the Kentucky Wildcats lost to the Wisconsin Badgers.[14]

Bid for Mayor[edit]

On October 26, 2015, Mosby announced that he was running for mayor of Baltimore.[15] He dropped out of the race on April 13, 2016, and threw his support behind Catherine E. Pugh.[16]

When he announced his bid for the mayoral election, Mosby decided to forego a bid for re-election to his seat on the Council. On November 8, 2016, Leon F. Pinkett won his vacated seat on the Council.[17]

Personal life[edit]

Mosby is married to Marilyn (James) Mosby, the state's attorney of Baltimore City. They have two children together.[18][19] He is Catholic.[4]
