Former Baltimore County NAACP head Tony Fugett to challenge Izzy Patoka for County Council

April 8, 2022

The former head of the Baltimore County NAACP is running for County Council in a district that was at the center of the county’s redistricting conflict. Tony Fugett of Owings Mills filed paperwork Thursday to seek election in District 2, now represented by Councilman Izzy Patoka. Both are Democrats. Fugett is a plaintiff in a redistricting lawsuit in which civil rights groups and county voters backed by the ACLU of Maryland say County Council district maps initially drawn last year would unlawfully dilute Black residents’ votes.
