Kevin Kamenetz Joins Democratic Race for Governor

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz is joining the crowded Democratic field in the race for Maryland governor.

Kamenetz plans to launch his campaign Monday morning in Towson, where he has worked as county executive for the past seven years.

Kamenetz, 59, said his experience running Maryland’s third-largest jurisdiction will translate to success running the state.

“As county executive, I’ve gotten real results,” Kamenetz told The Baltimore Sun. “I’ve created jobs. I’ve improved schools. I’ve protected the environment — all without raising the tax rates.
