Johnny O is still the home­town kid

The Dundalk Eagle - - BY THE PEOPLE -

Johnny Ol­szewski Jr. grew up here, taught here, proudly served as a del­e­gate rep­re­sent­ing Dun­dalk and still lives right here in Dun­dalk. He has cho­sen to live in Dun­dalk and raise a fam­ily here. That’s why I’m con­fused by folks say­ing he’s left us be­hind.

Since June 2017, Johnny O has been on the cam­paign trail non­stop, meet­ing vot­ers in ev­ery cor­ner of the county, in­clud­ing here in Dun­dalk. In fact, his head­quar­ters is across North Point Boule­vard from the neigh­bor­hood he grew up in. I have seen him in Dun­dalk plenty of times and in other ar­eas of our very large county. My friends have also seen him across the county. He works a pay­ing job, has a fam­ily and runs his cam­paign. I am so im­pressed with his en­ergy and ded­i­ca­tion to keep do­ing all of this and do this well.

His pri­or­i­ties are our pri­or­i­ties: im­prov­ing schools, cre­at­ing jobs and re­vi­tal­iz­ing Spar­rows Point, mak­ing gov­ern­ment open and keep­ing com­mu­ni­ties safe. I want to add that we are very for­tu­nate hav­ing a for­mer teacher run­ning for of­fice. He knows what it’s like in real class­rooms, in real schools and in real com­mu­ni­ties. He taught right here in Dun­dalk so he knows first­hand what is go­ing on in schools in our area.

Teach­ers have many trans­ferrable skills such as plan­ning, be­ing de­tail ori­ented and work­ing with peo­ple. Johnny O has all of these skills and many oth­ers in ad­di­tion to his ex­pe­ri­ence in gov­ern­ment as a del­e­gate and other pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence.

Johnny O won’t for­get the home­town that gave so much to him — that much I know for sure. We’ve never had a county ex­ec­u­tive from Dun­dalk. It’s time to change that. I have full con­fi­dence in Johnny O as Bal­ti­more County Ex­ec­u­tive! Go Johnny O!
