TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski on Thursday delivered the FY2023 Baltimore County budget message.
“When I first stood before you three years ago, Baltimore County was at a crossroads,” said County Executive Olszewski. “Facing an $81 million structural deficit, we were in danger of losing our prized Triple AAA bond rating, defaulting on our promise to provide healthcare for our retirees, and in danger of being unable to meet some of the most basic needs of our residents.”
“As we faced this challenge, we were honest with the public and engaged them in identifying solutions,” Olszewski added. “In doing so, we heard overwhelming calls from the community for greater investments—not less—in education, public safety, and other core government services.”
