Liam Davis is a progressive Democrat running for the House of Delegates in Maryland's 46th District. A native of Northeast Baltimore, Liam attended public schools before attending Calvert Hall College High School. Upon graduating, he enrolled at Towson University and, in January of 2012, received his bachelor's degree in Metropolitan Studies. Liam's choice of major reflects his deep interest in urban issues and his love of Baltimore City. His experience as a Community Ambassador while a student strengthened his commitment to become a public servant.
While in high school and college, Liam supported himself by working at a grocery store where he became an active member of Local 27 United Food and Commercial Workers. In June of 2011, he was among the thousands of Baltimore area Superfresh workers who were laid off when the Baltimore stores were shuttered. The experience gave Liam a deeper understanding of the challenges associated with job loss and an awareness of the increasing vulnerability of the middle class.
Today, Liam lives and works in the 46th District. He currently serves as a Community Liaison for Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young. Liam began working with the Council President's Office as an intern while completing his studies at Towson University and, upon graduating, became a full time member of the Council President's Neighborhood Relations Team.
Liam serves the City of Baltimore in a professional and caring manner infused with a passion that comes from his deep-rooted love for the city. His belief is that through hard work, creativity, and leadership, the City of Baltimore can become a model for improving communities nationwide.
