New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community
Putting Service Above Self
Tony is East Baltimore’s son. He’s our neighbor, our friend and the father of 4 beautiful children. Tony attended Baltimore City Public Schools and some college here in East/SE Baltimore. In his previous role as a Community Liaison/Crime Control and Prevention Coordinator, with the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office, he has been a strong advocate for criminal just reform, safer communities, and a more economically viable district. Councilman Glover, was inaugurated to serve the citizens of the 13th District of Baltimore on December 10, 2020.
Tony has been elected twice to the Baltimore City State Central Committee (BCSCC) 2014 to current, and he was voted among the (BCSCC) body to serve as our 2nd Vice Chair. Prior to these accomplishments, for over 15 years, Tony was employed with Baltimore’s (DPW), where he worked in many capacities; from Recs and Parks, Pest Controller, Solid Waste laborer and driver, and a Lead-worker with the Mechanical Street Sweeping Operation.
Tony knows first-hand what it takes to make our community cleaner and greener.
Tony has worked closely with business owners, residents, local schools and churches to help solve the issues and problems currently plaguing district 13. In addition, Tony has built strong partnerships with the Baltimore Public School System, the Baltimore Police Department, the Police Athletic League and various community associations, and other organizations in an effort to grow business and improve the quality of life for all who live, work, or play in District 13.
Since taking office, Tony has been a stanch advocate for housing. In July, 2021 his council bill, 21-0031 Landlord-Tenant Lease Renewals, was ratified, closing the loophole that was allowing landlords to evict tenants during the eviction moratorium by way of refusing to renew leases. This "just cause" bill mandates that a landlord require good cause to refuse to renew a tenant's lease during the pandemic state of emergency and for 6 months following. This bill is expected to assist tenants as a housing crisis looms with the expiration of the federal eviction moratorium.
Councilman Glover has also proven himself to be an effective leader in the council, jumping right into the work, coordinating community clean-ups, organizing community walks, holding unity events such as his "Cocktails and Conversations" events, and making constituent services his top priority. The relationships he has built in his former roles in the Department of Public Works and State Attorney's Office, as well as rapport with city, state, and federal level elected officials has only added to his ability to get things done. His boots on the ground approach to governing is a proven model of leading by example and getting results. Tony's philosophy is that transparency is to be accessible, and one can't be accessible if they are always behind a desk. He believes in rolling up his sleeves and pitching in, because "Together, we can work to change the trajectory of the city."
