What a difference four years makes. In 2018, former Del. John “Johnny O” Olszewski Jr. defeated state Sen. Jim Brochin by a mere 17 votes in what seemed at the time an upset victory in the Democratic primary for Baltimore County executive. He went on to win the job, defeating Al Redmer Jr., a popular former state insurance commissioner and onetime minority leader in the House of Delegates, and took office with the promise of more investment in public schools, improved transparency and ethics in county government, better public transit and a greater emphasis on equity and fairness.
