Contestants
 
 
Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was sworn in as Baltimore’s 49th mayor on February 4, 2010. In November 2011, she was elected to her first full term as Mayor, receiving 87% percent of the vote in the mayoral general election. Mayor Rawlings-Blake has focused her administration on growing Baltimore’s population by 10,000 families over the next decade by improving public safety and public education and by strengthening city neighborhoods. Mayor Rawlings-Blake was elected to a top leadership position in the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to serve as Secretary, following the historic reelection of President Barack Obama. 
Dr. Gregory Thornton Dr. Gregory E. Thornton comes to Baltimore City Public Schools from Milwaukee Public Schools in Wisconsin, a district similar in size to City Schools, where he served as superintendent from July 2010 to June 2014. The Milwaukee superintendency was the latest in a series of leadership posts Dr. Thornton has held in large urban school districts, and in which he consistently has improved student achievement. He shares Baltimore’s commitment to children, and his accomplishments over the years align closely with City Schools’ priorities and areas of reform focus. In Baltimore, Dr. Thornton sees an opportunity to sure all students graduate positioned to succeed in college, career training, jobs, and life overall.
Burgess is a personal trainer, youth coach, and former Ravens linebacker. During his time with the Ravens he established himself as a special teams standout, becoming one of their top tacklers in that unit. Before being drafted in the sixth round by Baltimore during the 2007 NFL Draft, Burgess was a standout at the University of Michigan, twice named an All-Big 10 Conference honorable mention in 2005 and 2006. In addition to his work as a personal trainer at Federal Hill Fitness, Burgess is a youth coach and mentor at Coppermine Fieldhouse, teaching kids from ages 3 to 13 not only sports and exercise, but the value of sportsmanship and teamwork.
Megan Anderson is a professional actor and mom who has been living and working in Baltimore her whole life. She is a longtime member  of the Resident Acting Company at Everyman Theatre where she has appeared in over twenty productions including Crimes of the Heart, God of Carnage, The Beaux’ Stratagem, Blackbird, Proof and the upcoming Tribes. Megan has also worked regionally at Center Stage, Round House Theatre, Theater J, Woolly Mammoth Theatre, Rep Stage, and Totem Pole Playhouse. Television/film credits include 3 seasons as Jen Carcetti on the acclaimed HBO series The Wire. She is also an audition coach and teacher, and proud mom to Zoe and Willa.
