Former Baltimore County Councilman and Delegate Joseph Bartenfelder Endorses Al Redmer, Jr.

TOWSON, MD - Al Redmer, Jr., Republican nominee for Baltimore County Executive, today announced his endorsement from former Baltimore County Councilman and Delegate Joe Bartenfelder. Bartenfelder, a Democrat, is a well-known and influential figure in Baltimore County politics, having represented District 8 in the Maryland House of Delegates from 1983 to 1994, and District 6 on the Baltimore County Council from 1994 to 2010. Bartenfelder will announce his endorsement at an event in support of Redmer this evening in Reisterstown.

“I am immensely honored to have the support and endorsement of my good friend Joe Bartenfelder, and would like to thank him for being the latest of many Democrats for Redmer,” Redmer said. “At a time of increased partisanship throughout the nation, I am truly grateful for the support of Democrats like Joe and all of those throughout the county who recognize the need to put aside politics and do what’s best for Baltimore County.”

“I am proud to support Al Redmer for County Executive and can think of no one more qualified for the job,” Bartenfelder said. “Al has the commitment, integrity, and maturity to lead our county through the challenges we are currently facing. He understands the needs of our diverse communities, and has the experience and the vision to fix our schools, make our communities safer, and get Baltimore County back on the right track.”

Bartenfelder will make a public endorsement this evening at the Reisterstown Rodeo for Redmer event at Reynolds Farm, 427 Cockeys Mill Road. The event will run from 6:30 to 10:30 PM and is open to media.

In addition to Bartenfelder, Redmer has also been endorsed by former Democratic Baltimore County Executive Dennis Rasmussen. Redmer has racked up several other high-profile endorsements over the last month, including Maryland Business for Responsive Government, the Council of Administrative & Supervisory Employees for Baltimore County Public Schools, and all three major public safety unions: the Baltimore County SheriffsPolice, and Fire Fighters.
