In the fourth profile of the six Democratic CD4 candidates, today’s spotlight is on Glenn Ivey:

Ivey served two terms as state’s attorney, building a reputation as a thoughtful and fair litigator during a time when the rates for homicide and violent crimes were dropping dramatically. He reorganized the prosecutor’s office, which his predecessor, Jack B. Johnson, had left in turmoil (Johnson, who had become county executive, later pleaded guilty to corruption charges related to his tenure as county executive). And Ivey worked closely with the community — helping create mentoring programs, asking faith leaders to open a dialogue about domestic abuse and forming a task force of local organizations to develop anti-gang programs and laws.
