As our new Baltimore County Executive, Johnny Olszewski, presses forward to lead this county, we all should listen carefully (“Maryland's new leaders: Time to try transparency,” Nov. 3). As he stated on social media, "Every family in Baltimore County deserves the opportunity to achieve economic stability and security. A robust and dynamic education system is the foundation to that stability, but it's only the beginning."
