Our Interview with Mayor Gavin Buckley

Creating a Legacy with an Eye to the Future; Our interview with Mayor Gavin Buckley, as he embarks on a second term. Last November 2nd, Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley, a Democrat first elected in 2017, became the first city executive to win a second term since fellow Democrat Ellen Moyer (2001–2009). Prior to that election, we wrote that, “His first four years have been notable for an emphasis on renovating, developing, and modernizing the historic district from West Street to Main Street.” Just before Christmas, we sat down with the Mayor to discuss what he’ll focus on during the next four years, including the implementation of the 2020 report by the City Dock Action Committee (CDAC), “Transforming City Dock,” a cooperative effort between the Mayor’s office, the City Council, Historic Annapolis, Inc., and other organizations that advised and funded the report including the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Maryland Historical Trust, Preservation Maryland, and the National Park Service’s Chesapeake Bay Office. We were also especially interested in what he wanted to be remembered for and if he harbored aspirations for higher office.

He also recounted some of the challenges that arose during his first term. “Make no mistake, we suffered losses with Covid, we suffered losses from overdoses, from gun violence, too.
