A Baltimore native, Liam Davis is a driven, innovative community leader, public servant, and policymaker. Whether he’s in City Hall or a local community meeting, Liam finds opportunities and challenges and then gets to work. His goal? Make Baltimore more efficient, livable and safer.
As District 1 Councilmember, Liam will champion a government that not only excels at the basics, but also aspires to and accomplishes the big things.
Liam Davis is a proud, lifelong Democrat who believes that all Baltimoreans should have access to reliable transportation, quality healthcare, and good paying jobs. All people should feel safe in their neighborhood and city – no matter their race, gender, creed, immigration status, sexual orientation, or income.
As a 16-year grocery store worker, Liam joined UFCW Local 27. He’s been paying dues ever since. Every day, Liam will fight for everyone in our city, but especially for working and middle class families. Throughout his life, Liam has done just that.
Liam, at his core, is a Baltimorean. Upon graduating from Towson University, Liam entered Baltimore City government as a Community Liaison and then was promoted to serve as Chief Clerk of the City Council.
As a Community Liaison, Liam worked directly with community organization leaders, attended countless meetings, listened to the concerns of neighborhoods, and then headed back to City Hall to problem solve.
In April of 2019, Liam was appointed to serve as the Legislative Affairs Manager for the Baltimore City Department of Transportation. Liam has not only played a central role in drafting and fine-tuning numerous legislative and policy initiatives, but has also advanced their implementation.
Liam Davis led on the Electric Vehicle Work Group, curbside outdoor dining regulations, traffic calming policies, maintaining public ownership of our municipal conduit, and ensuring Baltimore has received its fair share of highway user revenue – just to name a few.
These efforts have collectively helped Baltimore by improving public safety, enhancing city services, promoting small business, and generating more revenue to invest in Baltimore’s aging infrastructure.
It is in these roles where Liam has developed a broad knowledge of the functions and responsibilities of the individual agencies that make up Baltimore City Government. As council member, Liam Davis will hit the ground running.
For Liam, public service doesn’t end when City Hall dims the lights. As President of the Greektown Community Association, he has brought neighbors and administrators together to help facilitate the construction and renovation of John Ruhrah Elementary School – an integral community asset that serves over 900 Baltimore children and their families.
Greektown, under Liam’s community leadership, also advanced the transformation of the vacant Pemco factory to new housing, retail, and office space. This once empty building is now a centerpiece of a burgeoning Greektown. As council member, Liam Davis will make community input and investment a priority.
All our neighborhoods deserve to have maintained green space – no matter how small such areas may be. Liam, as a community leader, partnered with Blue Water Baltimore to plant over 300 trees in Greektown.
For 5 years, Liam has volunteered as a Reading Partner, splitting time between Westport Academy and Holabird Academy, tutoring the youth of Baltimore with reading comprehension. Previously, Liam took his baseball talents to the Patterson Park Little League as a head coach.
Liam is a graduate of Calvert Hall College High School and Towson University, where he earned a degree in Metropolitan Studies.
Liam occasionally stops talking policy and dabbles in fun. He cheers on his beloved Orioles and Ravens in Camden Yards or at home with his bird-loving cat, Jebbi. Liam also plays league softball after a long youth baseball career. In order to avoid unnecessary controversy, Liam’s karaoke playlist will be revealed on the eve of the May 14th Democratic Primary election.
