BALTIMORE (AP) - The influential Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance is backing City Councilman Nick J. Mosby in the crowded field of candidates seeking to become Baltimore’s next mayor.

The alliance -which represents 50 churches in the Baltimore area - decided to endorse Mosby recently based on his plans for the city outlined in his 15-point platform that includes plans for universal prekindergarten and a 15 percent cut in property taxes for homeowners.

Alliance President Rev. Alvin Gwynn Sr. said in a statement that the coalition “carefully listened” to Mosby’s plans, and found them to be holistic and insightful.

Mosby is among 28 candidates running to replace Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who decided not to run for another term. Among other candidates are former Mayor Sheila Dixon, state Sen. Catherine E. Pugh and City Councilman Carl Stokes.
