EPISODE 266: Johnny O discusses challenges of running Baltimore County government during pandemic

    As we begin our merger of WNST.net and Baltimore Positive this fall, we’re about to bring forward a wide variety of guests and thought leaders and topics as we navigate all of the aspects of life during a pandemic. Because we haven’t been able to sit down and eat a proper crab cake at Faidley’s at Lexington Market or have some chicken and waffles at State Fare in Catonsville with our guests, we have been doing one longish episode rather than our customary three shorter blocks of conversation.

    Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski has had his hands full managing every aspect of a pandemic in a role that our Don Mohler knows well in Towson. So, we asked a lot of questions to catch up on what is happening with schools, police, taxes and the future.

    And you know that Nestor asked about the completion of the stunning new Colgate Elementary in Dundalk (his alma mater) as well…

    Clearly, we voted in June. And we hope you are ready to vote again in November!

    We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

    We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with wisdom from wise leaders as our citizens try to readjust to this pandemic during the summer at Baltimore Positive.

    Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

    We’ll try to keep you cool.
