The mayor said in July that he had closed on a house in Northeast Baltimore’s Hamilton neighborhood, where he has rented an apartment for several years.

Scott and Pugh made several public appearances in the spring and summer, a rarity for the private mayor, who had not brought a partner into the spotlight during his mayoral tenure. He was elected in 2020 is seeking reelection in 2024.

Pugh is operations director for Bmore Empowered, a nonprofit that offers programming for Black girls and women as well as administrative and accounting support to Baltimore nonprofits and women-owned businesses.
