Considering all the scandals we have in government, it is good that Baltimore County Councilman John A. Olszewski Sr. is being investigated by the county ethics board for not reporting his private employment history ("Ethics panel to discuss Olszewski omissions," June 2). Let the chips fall where they may.

I do know this much about Johnnie O, however. He is a strong supporter of the people he represents, regardless of political affiliation. He is always there to help people with whatever problems they have.

He even goes to areas with problems to see for himself what is going on and what he can do to help. Above all, he is an honest person, and even though it might not look right, I will side on his explanations in this matter.

An honest person is hard to find, and I believe that we have one in Johnnie O.
