Odell Watkins

Played by Frederick Strother

Bound to a wheelchair, state legislator Watkins is a power in Baltimore's Annapolis delegation and a senior member of the state House Appropriations Committee. He is also a kingmaker and a valuable political operative with strong voter influence. As a political leader, he is more genuine than most in confronting the difficulties of improving Baltimore and is not afraid to confront the political realities associated with that goal.
