Now that the majority of mail-in ballots have been counted, I am thrilled to announce that we have won the Primary campaign for Baltimore County Council!
This afternoon (July 25), I spoke with both Shafiyq Hinton and Caitlin Klimm-Kellner. They were incredibly gracious and offered their unconditional support as we head toward the Nov. 8th General Election.
I am thankful for the competitive campaigns Shafiyq and Caitlin ran. They made me a better candidate. And together, we proved that politics doesn’t have to bring out the worst in people. In this case, it brought out the best. I wish them well and I know they have bright futures ahead.
County Executive Johnny Olszewski has also called with his congratulations. I look forward to working in partnership with him, and helping to build a better Baltimore County.
I got in this race not out of a desire for power or influence. I just want to help make our communities stronger, and give residents a greater voice in our progress. With a seat on the County Council, I can do just that.
But for now, I want to thank everyone who voted, volunteered, donated, knocked doors and hosted events for us. I am grateful to my campaign chair, Ed Kilcullen, and of course to my incredibly supportive (and patient) family.
On to November!
