Ol­szewski poli­cies not what com­mu­nity needs

The Dundalk Eagle - - BY THE PEOPLE -

The more I learn about Bal­ti­more County Ex­ec­u­tive Can­di­date John Ol­szewski Jr’s po­si­tions on Sec­tion 8, sanc­tu­ary county sta­tus and the Home Act, the more I be­come con­vinced that he would be a great can­di­date IF he was run­ning for Mayor of San Fran­cisco or Bal­ti­more City.

Ad­mit­tedly, I don’t con­sider my­self all that smart. De­spite try­ing, how­ever, I haven’t been able to come up with a sin­gle in­stance how any of the above does any­thing but lessen our prop­erty val­ues and make our com­mu­nity less safe. The politi­cians aren’t the ex­perts on these so­cial ex­per­i­ments. We the cit­i­zens are! We live with the re­al­i­ties ev­ery day!

In this writer’s opin­ion, Johnny O gave the “po­lit­i­cal fin­ger” to many of his neigh­bors and for­mer sup­port­ers when he de­clined to ap­pear at the Oct. 5 de­bate at North Point Gov­ern­ment Cen­ter.

Dur­ing his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer, Ol­szewski has found time to sup­port Martin O’Mal­ley, Hil­lary Clin­ton, Michael Busch and Ben Jeal­ous in their po­lit­i­cal quests. Based on his Face­book page, Jr. has spent more time on the west side of the county than any­where else dur­ing this cam­paign. How­ever, he re­fused to make time to face his fel­low Dun­dalkians and per­son­ally ad­dress im­por­tant is­sues of in­ter­est to them. To this writer, Mr. Ol­szewski’s de­bate can­cel­la­tion dis­played an ar­ro­gance be­fit­ting a mem­ber of the “ole boys club”. I’m not sure I would have voted for Mr. Ol­szewski had he cho­sen to ap­pear at the de­bate, but at least I would have re­spected him.
