D’Andrea Walker Assumes Job as Baltimore County’s Top Administrative Officer

Following a standing ovation by the seven members of the Baltimore County Council, D’Andrea Walker took her seat tonight in the chambers as the next chief administrative officer, the top non-elected position in county government.

She replaces Stacy Rodgers, who is leaving as CAO after five years, nominated by County Executive Johnny Olszewski, who is running for the 2nd District Congressional seat in next month’s Democratic Party primary.

If Olszewski wins the primary and prevails in the general election in November, Walker is in line to take over as acting county executive for the two years remaining in Olszewski’s term.
