It's hard to believe, but this year's campaign season is in full swing: the primary election is on June 24, 2014 and the General election is on November 4, 2014. After two terms in the Maryland House of Delegates, I have announced that I am running for the Maryland State Senate.
With your help, we have been able to accomplish so much in the district -- including hundreds of millions of dollars of investments in new schools and community centers, enhanced parks, and historic investments in environmental clean-up. Just last year, I helped lead the charge in securing hundreds of thousands of dollars for projects that will commemorate our community's role in the War of 1812, funding a building that will help several nonprofits working with youth and families in the district, and millions more towards a housing initiative that will continue to grow and strengthen our historic communities. All the while, I have continued to fight in Annapolis for the working class values that were instilled in me as a child.
While we have accomplished a lot, there remains more important work to be done. That is why I am running for the state Senate: to continue fighting for more meaningful jobs, better schools, safer streets, and a cleaner environment.
I invite you to join me and the rest of "Team O" in this important effort!

Olszewski is passionate about what he does. He has a genuine excitement about doing his job as an elected representative of the people. A goal for him is to fight for all the people.
“It is an opportunity for me, a blessing and an honor to give back to the people,” Olszewski said. “It is exciting. It’s what gets me out of bed each morning. It’s about the people.”
When asked what his biggest challenge has been, Olszewski said fighting back against distortions of facts; having people recognize what he has done and how he voted on each issue. It has certainly been his focus to share the facts of what each legislative bill will do and why it is a good bill or a ...
