Ryan Nawrocki files to run for County Council District 6

Ryan NawrockiOn Wednesday, Ryan Nawrocki officially filed to run for Baltimore County’s Sixth Council District seat which is located in eastern Baltimore County.

Nawrocki has been endorsed by Gov. Bob Ehrlich, Congressman Andy Harris, former Baltimore County Executive Roger Hayden and former Baltimore County Councilman Wayne Skinner in his run for this seat.

“I’m running for County Council because eastern Baltimore County deserves a real voice and a different direction. Violence in our schools and communities is out of control, there’s corruption in our school system and our county government has no plan to deal with congestion and overcrowding in our communities,” said Nawrocki. “Throughout my career I’ve worked to serve my community and delivery solutions to complex challenges. As your council member I will continue to work for you to place people above politics on the County Council and change business as usual in Towson.”

“I’m supporting Ryan Nawrocki for Baltimore County Council and I’m doing it proudly,” said Gov. Bob Ehrlich. “He’s a devoted family man and a solid conservative. Please vote for him.”

“I enthusiastically endorse Ryan Nawrocki for County Council,” said Congressman Andy Harris. “Ryan Nawrocki is the right person at the right time for the Sixth Councilmanic District.”

The son of a working-class family, Nawrocki says he learned the values of hard work and determination from the examples his grandfathers set as a World War II U.S. Navy Veteran and a World War II airplane builder at the Glenn L. Martin Company in Middle River.

These values served Nawrocki well as the first person in his family to graduate from college. They also served the community well as Nawrocki was the youngest appointee in the administration of former Gov. Bob Ehrlich, a communications director for Congressman Andy Harris, and later helped to modernize one of the largest state agencies in Baltimore as a part of the Hogan Administration.

Nawrocki also recently created his own small business – a communications and marketing firm.

“His fresh perspective is exactly what we need to put people above politics and help deliver much needed changes to our school system,” said former County Executive and current school board member Roger Hayden. “It’s because of this much needed new approach that I am endorsing Ryan and will be happy for what he can bring to Baltimore County as a member of the Council.”

“Over the last eight years, the County has not focused on the needs of our communities, schools are overcrowded and crime is increasing. Ryan Nawrocki is someone who will deliver solutions to these critically important issues. That is why I’m endorsing Ryan for Baltimore County Council,” said former Baltimore County Councilman Wayne Skinner.

Nawrocki says he is dedicated to common sense solutions that will change Baltimore County government.

Ryan and his wife, Lauren, live in Middle River with their daughter, Emily, and sons, Matthew, Luke, and Jacob. Lauren is a nurse practitioner. Nawrocki recently completed his master’s degree in public management at Johns Hopkins University.
