Former Lt. Governor Melvin A. Steinberg Endorses Al Redmer, Jr., for Baltimore County Executive

TOWSON, MD - Al Redmer, Jr., Republican nominee for Baltimore County Executive, today announced his endorsement from former Maryland Lieutenant Governor Melvin “Mickey” A. Steinberg. Steinberg, a Democrat, served as the fifth lieutenant governor of Maryland, under Governor William Donald Schaefer, from 1987 to 1995, and as President of the State Senate from 1983 to 1987.

“I am tremendously proud to support Al Redmer in his effort to become the next Baltimore County Executive,” Steinberg said. “Al not only knows how to work across the aisle to get things done, he has the business experience and the right skills to tackle the many challenges that the county is currently facing. His unique skill set and close relationship with Governor Hogan will be a huge benefit to Baltimore County and all its residents.”

“I am extremely honored to receive this endorsement from Mickey Steinberg and would like to thank him for joining the thousands of Democrats for Redmer who are putting the interests of Baltimore County and its residents over party politics,” Redmer said. “Mickey understands what it takes to run a government, and the critical need for experienced executive leadership at this cornerstone moment in our county’s history. I am very grateful for his support.”

In addition to Steinberg, Redmer has also been endorsed by well-known and influential Baltimore County Democrats Joe Bartenfelder, former state legislator and county councilman, and Dennis Rasmussen, former County Executive. In addition, he is the first Republican candidate for Baltimore County Executive in history to have been endorsed by every major public safety union in the county. He has also been endorsed by Maryland Business for Responsive Government, a statewide, nonpartisan organization that advocates for pro-growth policies supporting economic development and job creation, and the Council of Administrative & Supervisory Employees (CASE), an organization representing the county’s public school principals, assistant principals, and other administrative and supervisory employees.
