Whether as a public school teacher or as Baltimore County Executive, John “Johnny O” Olszewski Jr. has dedicated his life to serving our community.
Johnny was born and raised right here in Baltimore County, and he’s a proud alum of our public schools. The first in his family to earn a college degree, Johnny started his career by serving his community teaching civics in Baltimore County Public Schools for seven years. When he saw firsthand the challenges that our students and community face, Johnny decided to run for public office.
As County Executive, Johnny O has led bold and transformative change for creating a better and more progressive Baltimore County. In his first year, Johnny passed legislation that prevents guns from falling into the hands of dangerous criminals by setting security standards for gun retailers. He closed an $81 million budget deficit all the while raising teacher pay and strengthening the County’s historic commitment to school construction.
Whether tackling issues like gun safety and police reform, instilling principles of equity and accountability back into our government, or securing record funding for our public schools, Johnny O has shown in Baltimore County what we can do when we come together for the greater good.
With democracy under attack and extremists threatening to take away our basic rights, it’s clear that the time is now for a new generation of leadership. As your Representative, Johnny O will protect reproductive rights and abortion access, defend our democracy and our vote, and fight to restore transparency and accountability in our government.
