Annapolis, MD — Maryland Democratic Party Chair Kathleen Matthews issued the following statement on the tragic death of Baltimore County Executive and Democratic candidate for governor Kevin Kamenetz:


“All of us at the Maryland Democratic Party are shocked and saddened by the tragic death of Kevin Kamenetz, and today our condolences go out to his wife Jill, their two sons, his running mate Valerie Ervin, and his staff as they mourn the loss of a husband, father and mentor.


“County Executive Kamenetz devoted his life to public service and spent his entire career fighting to improve the lives of Marylanders as a Young Democrat, prosecutor, councilman, county executive, and candidate for governor. He put every ounce of energy and discipline he had into serving his constituents in Baltimore County, and he would have been a great governor.  Maryland families lost one of their best champions this morning.”
