Balt.Co.Exec. Olszewski on COVID response, crime, transit, schools...

Johnny Olszewski, Jr. won election as Baltimore County Executive in 2018. He is in his first 4-year term leading the state's third largest jurisdiction.

Tom's Newsmaker guest today is Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski, Jr.

The County is Maryland’s third largest jurisdiction. The Towson Loop was recently introduced to address traffic congestion in the County Seat, and Mr. Olszewski is moving to electrify the County’s fleet of cars. School construction and renovation remain hot topics. And like other large and small cities and entities around the country, the County is experiencing an uptick in violent crime. We’ll talk about these and other issues, including the County's ongoing response to COVID-19.

We also welcome your questions and comments.

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski, Jr. joins us on our digital line from his County office in Towson, Maryland.

Audio will be posted here later this afternoon.
