On this episode of Tying it Together with Tim Boyum, we hear from Mary-Ann Baldwin. 

Within months of winning her first term as Raleigh Mayor, a pandemic dominated life. A couple of months later, social justice protests and then riots destroyed parts of the city.  Mary-Ann Baldwin talks about leading the city through these traumatic times, affordable housing challenges, criticism she faces and growth.  

She also dishes on her favorite restaurants, and we hear about moments that changed the city forever and at least one mistake leaders made in planning.
