532 E North Avenue

It always shocks me when people who work in the home improvement industry buy homes and then allow them to rot.  This home, owned by a local plumber, is rather offensive.

The Flanigan family has been contributing to the Baltimore political machine for a long time — most notably, thousands to Mayor (and former City Council President) Stephanie Rawlings-Blake,  former Mayor Sheila Dixon, Governor (and former Mayor) Martin O’Malley, various Delegates and City Council representatives — and in return, they’ve been awarded several City contracts — parking lots at the Cirque de Soleil event location in Westport, expansion of the BW Parkway, the cruise ship terminal, and others.

Perhaps they should spend less money on campaign contributions, and more money on fixing up these three blighted homes:
