Olszewski Names New Press Secretary

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski yesterday announced that Sean Naron will be joining his leadership team as press secretary. He succeeds T.J. Smith, who will be departing the executive’s office to explore other opportunities.

“Sean is a dedicated, hard-working, and energetic communicator with years of experience working with journalists to ensure the public has access to the critical information they deserve,” Olszewski said. “I’m thrilled to have him return to our team as we continue implementing our vision for a better Baltimore County.”

According to a press release:

Naron most recently served as press secretary to Dr. Leana Wen at Planned Parenthood Federation of America. A Baltimore County native and graduate of Dulaney High School, Naron previously worked as communications director for Olszewski’s campaign for county executive, communications director for Kevin Kamenetz’s campaign for governor, and as deputy press secretary to former Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. He will serve as the office’s primary point of contact for media.

Smith has served in the role of press secretary since January 2019, shortly after Olszewski was sworn into office. He will depart the county executive’s office on Friday, October 4.

“T.J. has been a valued advisor and a critical team member as we began our work in Baltimore County. I’m grateful for his hard work and his thoughtful approach to the job of press secretary,” Olszewski said.
