Daniel Zawodny covers transportation in Baltimore and its surrounding communities for The Baltimore Banner. Before joining The Banner, Daniel covered immigration and immigrant issues at the local, national and international levels as an independent journalist while working in the field of immigration law. He is fluent in Spanish and bachata and would really like to pet your dog.
In Baltimore and the surrounding region, transportation is an equity, financial and health issue. While traffic and commuting by cars often dominate the conversation around transportation, The Baltimore Banner encourages this reporter to also write about the issues around transit that often go uncovered. That means writing about public transit issues that impact people's ability to get to the doctor, work or grocery store. Coverage combines human interest and policy to make stories relatable to people. The transportation reporter thinks outside the box as they investigate the challenges communities face with the basic need of getting around.
