Councilman Tom Quirk
Thank you for visiting my Council's web site. It is my honor and privilege to represent the residents of the First Councilmanic District.
I was elected to the County Council in 2010 after years of community involvement and leadership. In addition to serving as your Councilman, I am also a certified financial planner and own a local small business. My wife, two children, and I live in Catonsville.
On the County Council, I represent the interests of my constituents in Southwest Baltimore County, and I work with my colleagues on the Council and with County Executive Kamenetz to promote the well-being of Baltimore County. This work involves staying in touch with and involved in our community, working across partisan lines, and making tough decisions. I'm proud of the work I do and value the opportunity to be your voice on the County Council.
During my term in office, I have worked on many different issues that affect the residents of District 1. Some of the work I'm most proud of has been on issues of Zoning and Development Transparency, Open Space and Environmental Protections, and Public Safety. Additionally, as Chair of the Spending Affordability Committee, I lead a team of elected officials and budget experts to make recommendations to our County Executive and the County Council for a fiscally responsible budget that funds the vital services that our residents depend on.
On this page, I have included a few helpful resources. In the top left corner of this page, you can find community updates and specific information relating to economic development issues in Southwest Baltimore County, UMBC, as well as the fiscal fact book from the County Auditor's Office. In the “Meetings” Tab above this letter, you can review the Council's agendas, minutes, and pending legislation to keep up with the many policy issues we address.
Finally, below this letter is the contact information for my Council office and my Council staff. Please be in touch with us if you have questions or needs that we can assist you with.
