TOWSON, MD – County Executive Johnny Olszewski on Monday made several personnel announcements.
Delegate Steve Lafferty will serve as Chief Sustainability Officer, Delegate Eric Bromwell will serve as Opioid Strategy Coordinator, and Troy Williams will serve as Chief Diversity Officer.
All three positions were recommended by Olszewski’s transition team. Romaine Williams, who previously served as an Assistant County Attorney, has taken on a new role as Chief of Employee and Labor Relations, a newly created position that will serve as the primary liaison to county employee unions.
“The key to building a government that effectively serves all residents is building a great team, and I’m thrilled that these talented individuals will bring their experience and expertise to work on behalf of our constituents,” Olszewski said. “Baltimore County is moving forward in big ways, and these individuals will play key roles in helping to carry out our vision.”
In addition, Olszewski announced several additions to his Office of Community Engagement, which works closely with communities and constituents to directly address concerns residents have and help them access county services. The new community engagement representatives are Sonia Almonte for Council District 1, Kristin King for Council District 5, and Gabrielle Slocum for Council District 6. Mary Clay, who previously served as the engagement representative for District 1, will now be the representative for Council District 4, and Carmen Christiana will be the representative for District 3. Michelle Bernstein will continue as the representative for District 2, and Pete Kriscumas will continue as the representative for District 7.
“Our new model of community engagement ensures that constituents have direct access to the executive office, and these new additions to the team will help us ensure every constituent has a voice in the county seat,” Olszewski said.
