Visits are Part of Statewide Maryland Association of Counties Tour

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, President of the Maryland Association of Counties (MACo), traversed a large swath of Maryland yesterday in his effort to meet personally with local leaders in all 24 of the state’s major subdivisions. He attended meetings of the Commissioners of St. Mary’s County, the Board of Commissioners of Calvert County and the Frederick County Council to discuss MACo’s advocacy for Maryland counties in this year’s General Assembly session and other issues of statewide concern.

Kamenetz and MACo Executive Director Michael Sanderson met with the three groups of legislators, discussing a number of topics including an overview of MACo’s positive influence in Annapolis during this year’s General Assembly session and how statewide MACo conferences and programs offer local officials a valuable opportunity to learn from each other and share best practices.

“The more that I meet with local legislators from around the state, the more it becomes clear that we are all dealing with similar challenges and constraints and that it is valuable to take the time to compare notes and find common solutions through MACo and other collaborative groups,” said Kamenetz.   

“I was pleased to welcome MACo to Frederick County,” said Frederick County Executive Jan H. Gardner. “As a past president, I’ve always enjoyed working with the organization. They do a great job of advocating for the common needs of all Maryland counties, such as funding for roads.”

MACo, founded in 1939, is a non-partisan collaborative organization that advocates for the needs of local government to the Maryland General Assembly, representing all of Maryland’s 23 counties and Baltimore City. Kamenetz is the fifth Baltimore County Executive to serve as President in the history of MACo, succeeding Christian Kahl, Dale Anderson, Dutch Ruppersberger and Jim Smith. With this new term, Kamenetz also becomes the longest serving current member of MACo, first joining in 1994 as a member of the Baltimore County Council.
