Dear Friend,
 
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!
 
Best regards,
Delegate John Olszewski, Jr.

Candidate for State Senate -- District 6

State Senate Candidates Working Out Details Of Two-Debate Proposal

Ben Boehl, The Dundalk Eagle on September 23, 2014

It is rare for a candidate regarded as a front-runner to seek out debates; such events are traditionally regarded as benefitting challengers, who are most in need of exposure.

Thus, it is a bit of a surprise that Del. John Olszewski Jr. wants to get together with his two opponents in the state Senate race for a debate.

The Democratic delegate is on the ballot for the vacant 6th District Senate seat along with Republican Johnny Ray Salling and unaffiliated candidate Scott Collier.

Olszewski recently sent an e-mail to Salling, Collier and members of the local media to propose two debates. One would be slated for Wednesday, Sept. 24 at CCBC Dundalk at 6:30 p.m. and the other debate would take place on Tuesday, Oct. 14 at CCBC Essex.

“[T]he people of the 6th Legislative District deserve an open discussion about the state-wide issues that we are facing as a community,” Olszewski said in the e-mail. “An open exchange of these ideas, along with the qualifications of the individuals seeking office and their respective ability to impact change, should be an important part of this campaign ...
