Tom's guest for the hour is Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski, Jr.

Baltimore County, which is home to dozens of nursing homes and long-term care facilities, has nearly 3,000 confirmed cases of COVID 19. More than 100 people in the County have died.  We’ll hear how the county is responding to the pandemic and what the shutdown might mean for the county’s proposed budget.    At a time when revenue to the county is expected to decline significantly, what will that mean for funding schools, police and other essential services?  Johnny Olszewski, Jr. joins us via Skype from his office in Towson.
