This came as somewhat of a surprise to me. Instead of further pursuing the motion for a re-trial Mayor Dixon submitted an Alford plea to one count of perjury and tendered her resignation effective February 4th. This paves the way for City Council President Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to step up as the Mayor of Baltimore. What isn't known is how this will affect current city policies and initiatives that were started under Dixon's administration.
