On April 7, 2022, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson made history as the first black woman confirmed to Supreme Court, the nation’s highest court in its 233-year history. The Senate voted 53-to-47 to approve Judge Jackson to the Supreme Court. Democrats worked hard to secure three republican votes to confirm her nomination, making history and helping President Biden deliver on a key campaign pledge. Justice-elect Jackson will replace Justice Stephen G. Breyer.
On April 4, 2022, Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski (D) introduced legislation to the Baltimore County Council to create the PAB. The proposed bill creates a nine-member PAB, including one member from each County Council district and two at-large members.
The County is seeking input from residents on establishing the PAB, including feedback on the process, functions, and membership. Any interested member of the public should submit written input to PAB@baltimorecountymd.gov.
Residents can provide legislative testimony before the County Council on April 26, 2022.
Olszewski will make appointments to the PAB following the passage of the County Council legislation.
For more information about the PAB legislation or public input opportunities, visit the PAB webpage. Those interested in serving on the PAB should submit their information here.
