Kamenetz tone deaf to residents' concerns [Letter]

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's last four years have been about not listening to the people who elected him, and that will not bode well for him in November.

Residents of Baltimore County are used to thoughtful, transparent and open discussions on issues that affect their neighborhoods. Mr. Kamenetz has been running Baltimore County like his own kingdom where residents' opinions and concerns fall on deaf ears.

Mr. Kamenetz is more in tune with the developers and construction companies that are overbuilding our county to the point of being ridiculous.
