Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. is proposing a spending plan that includes record funds for schools, investments in parks and raises for employees, saying the county is “on stable financial footing” two years into the pandemic. The Democrat on Thursday also pledged to address the inequities exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis.
