Intelligent Conversation

Venetoulis extols political wisdom of how Baltimore was built in 1970s

The veteran edge rusher spent three seasons with Chicago and said the play is more physical in the AFC North.

The story of Ted Venetoulis has played out in Baltimore County and throughout this region quite publicly over the past 50 years. The former County Executive and Towson Times publisher has moved downtown – and now a neighbor of Nestor at the Inner Harbor – and is ready to talk about getting our community activated to come back to the city and improve it for the next generation.

This was a lengthy three-part conversation with equal parts nostalgia and the pragmatism borne of a life spent in politics and winning and losing battles. But, most importantly, always finding a compromise to get a deal done.

We enjoyed every minute of this chat with an East Baltimore legend. Lots of stories we’ve never heard and some that we needed some clarification on after all of these years from Venetoulis.
