Redmer Announces Senior Staff to Lead Baltimore County Executive Campaign
TOWSON, MD -- Al Redmer, Jr., Republican candidate for Baltimore County Executive, today announced the hiring of his campaign's senior staff: Campaign Director Zachary Peters, Finance Director Nicole Ossola, and Communications Director Hannah Marr.
“The first test of executive leadership is finding the best talent, putting that talent in the right position, and setting the culture of your operation,” said Redmer. “Therefore, I am extremely excited to recognize the caliber of energetic and experienced talent that our campaign has attracted, who I believe will give us a competitive advantage and propel us to victory. I have full confidence in Zach, Nicole, and Hannah, and am grateful that they have chosen to join our effort.”
Zachary Peters is a veteran of Maryland politics, having worked on numerous GOP campaigns across the state. A Loyola University Maryland graduate, Peters has a background in advocacy, economic development, and politics. He is an appointed Economic Development Commissioner for the Town of Mount Airy, MD and was named one of The Daily Record's "20 in Their Twenties" in 2016.
"Having witnessed his leadership firsthand, I know Al Redmer is the only candidate who can truly change Baltimore County," Peters said. "His experience, commitment to community, and 'get-it-done' attitude is exactly what the county needs after more than a decade of failed leadership. I'm looking forward to working with the next County Executive in this capacity."
Nicole Ossola has been fundraising in Maryland politics since graduating from the University of Maryland in 2005. She leads record-breaking fundraising efforts for Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh and has raised funds in support of the re-election of two local Baltimore County Councilmen. The 32-year-old wife and mother of two young children attended Notre Dame Preparatory School in Towson and currently lives in Annapolis.
“I look forward to helping Al raise more money than any Republican candidate for Baltimore County Executive in history," Ossola said. "Al is incredibly well-liked, well-known, and well-respected throughout the county, which helps the difficult work of fundraising go much more smoothly. The enthusiasm of so many early supporters who are willing to contribute their valuable time and resources to the campaign has been tremendous."
Hannah Marr has most recently served as Press Secretary to Governor Larry Hogan, and has been a critical part of the administration for the last three years. Prior to serving in the Hogan administration, Marr worked on the governor's 2014 campaign, managing all aspects of social media and communications. Many have credited the Hogan campaign's effective use of social media for propelling the governor to the biggest upset victory in the nation during the 2014 election cycle. A Baltimore County native, Marr is an alumna of Washington College and was named one of The Daily Record's "20 in Their Twenties" in 2016.
"I am extremely excited for the opportunity to give the voters in my home county a competitive race for County Executive," Marr said. "Much like the state government in 2014, Baltimore County government has languished under one-party rule for too long, resulting in inefficiency, incompetence, and corruption. Al Redmer has the vision, experience, and pragmatism to win the GOP nomination, and become our next County Executive."
