Letter From The Councilman

We have started 2020 on a high note in the 2nd District office. There are a lot of good things happening, and it is keeping our office busy.

I am working across the aisle on legislation that would move Council work sessions from 2 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays. I am in favor of this change because I feel the current system does not allow the community an adequate opportunity to testify on important pieces of legislation. I believe that government should work for the people, not the other way around. This legislation would increase transparency, openness and accessibility.

The Comprehensive Zoning Map Process is well underway. I want to take a moment to let you know about an upcoming public hearing. On March 5 at 6 p.m. at Pikesville High School, the county planning board will be holding its hearing for the 40 CZMP issues that were filed in District 2. Residents who want to speak on any issue are free to do so. Public sign up for the testimony portion of the hearing will begin at 5 p.m. I would encourage as many people as possible to attend and testify so that I can make decisions on each issue that reflect the needs and desires of 2nd District residents.

As your councilman, I am honored to have the opportunity to partner with community organizations, schools, advocates and residents to help push our district forward. If there is anything I or my staff can help with, please reach out. You can contact my office by email at or by phone at 410-887-3385.

Izzy Patoka
Baltimore County Councilman
Second District

From Speaker Adrienne Jones:

The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future

This week, I joined leadership from across the state to testify in support of The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future. The Blueprint will ensure that every child has the opportunity to succeed, regardless of their zip code.

This transformational plan makes critical investments in early childhood education, our teachers, college and career readiness programs, and additional resources so Maryland students are fully prepared for high-skilled, high-waged jobs of the future.

Our most important and sacred duty as elected officials is to provide a brighter future for our students. I will keep fighting to uphold our commitment to Maryland’s children.
