County executive Johnny Olszewski commented on Hayden’s death in a statement on Thursday.

From The Baltimore Sun:

“A dedicated public servant and tireless advocate for public education, County Executive Hayden exemplified what it means to give back to our communities,” Olszewski said. “Baltimore County is stronger for his service and my sympathies and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this difficult time.”

Hayden had served on the Board of Education of Baltimore County since 2017, when Gov. Larry Hogan appointed him to fill a vacancy. He also served on the board from 1974 to 1987, six years of which he spent as board president.

He was also president of The Hayden Consulting Group, which specializes in business and organizational issues.

Hayden’s career spanned management in finance, operations, facilities management, and transportation, according to his biography on the school board website.

County Councilman David Marks called Hayden “a very important figure in the modern history of the Baltimore County Republican Party.”
