History & Politics My Top Ten With Brandon Scott The city councilman shares his favorite things. By Lauren Bell | March 2019 Christopher Myers OLD BAY: I really don’t have to explain this one, do I? This is Baltimore magazine. MERGENTHALER VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL JACKET: I’m a true Baltimorean, so the most important thing you can tell anyone is where you went to high school. I bleed blue and gold. #mustangpride SURFACE PRO: This is what I use to get the job done. From looking over crime stats to writing policy, my laptop is my lifeline. BOOKBAG. You will never see me without my bookbag. My life is in it—literally. It was the best Christmas gift I’ve ever received. ORIOLES JERSEY. There is nothing I long for more in sports than an Orioles World Series Championship. My Orioles jersey is customized with my Twitter handle and reminds folks that I love dem O’s, hon. BLUETOOTH HEADPHONES: Not only do these headphones pump out music to get me through my workouts, but they also make it so I can use both my cell phones hands-free without switching back and forth. CLEATS: I’m not as young as I once was, but I’m as good as I ever was. These customized cleats are essential to me showing those 20-somethings that speed kills in the Volo City flag football league every weekend. FITBIT: I love to work out, and while my Fitbit is not essential to my fitness, the notification feature keeps me informed on what’s happening in the city while I’m at appearances and meetings. BALTIMORE HAT: As the young people would say, “I put on for my city.” This hat lets everyone know, no matter where I am in the state or country, that I’m representing Baltimore to the fullest. USB DRIVE. I love Music. This USB drive has about 7,000 songs on it, with artists ranging from Wu-Tang Clan to James Brown. It provides me with much-needed stress relief as I drive from one place to another.
