Baltimore Co. Council elects Patoka as first new chairman in three years

January 3, 2024

Baltimore County Councilman Izzy Patoka was elected to lead the council this year, becoming the first new chairman since 2021. The second-term Democrat was the 6-0 choice at a Tuesday evening legislative session to lead meetings and set the agenda of the seven-member council; Councilman Todd Crandell was absent. Patoka is “a veteran of this body,” Republican 5th District Councilman David Marks, the longest-serving council member, said shortly after nominating Patoka. First-term 1st District Councilman Patrick “Pat” Young quickly seconded Marks’ nomination.
