Former Baltimore Mayor Dixon Seeks to Regain Office


BALTIMORE (AP) - Former Baltimore mayor Sheila Dixon will seek to regain the office next year.
Dixon confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that she plans to run. She also announced her campaign on Facebook and launched a campaign website. Dixon said she was on her way to a meeting and declined to comment further.
A Democrat, Dixon served as mayor from 2007 to 2010. She resigned after she was found guilty of embezzling gift cards that were donated to the city as gifts for poor children. She received probation before judgment and was ordered to perform 500 hours of community service and contribute $45,000 to charities.
Dixon's announcement comes as Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has been criticized over her handling of riots following the death of Freddie Gray in police custody.
