Mike Ertel

Mike Ertel is running for Baltimore County Council… By walking.

He wants to be the next councilperson for Baltimore County’s newly reconfigured 6th District, so Mike Ertel is walking every street in every neighborhood, introducing himself and learning what matters most to the people who matter most.

Great communities like Loch Raven Village, Overlea, Parkville, Rosedale, and Towson will only stay strong if someone is looking out for them. Mike has the experience, the energy and the vision for the job.

Will you help him?

“I grew up in Hamilton. I saw what happened when government stopped caring. I won’t let that happen here.”

–Mike Ertel

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!

— Mike

We did it!
