I am so pleased to share that Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski has just fully committed to the necessary funding for a new Dulaney High School building, and funding for a state-of-the-art Towson High School.
As you know, seeing that these schools get the construction funds they need has been the top priority of mine.
Dulaney will receive a completely new building. Towson High School’s capital project will incorporate the part of the existing building which is on the County’s Landmarks list.
The County Executive has the support of the Leadership in the State General Assembly, as well as the State Legislators whose districts are served by the school.
In this year’s Budget, County Executive Olszewski will include money for the planning for both schools and will commit funds in subsequent years to complete both projects.
My deepest appreciation goes out to the Friends of Dulaney High School and TOPP: Transparent Opening Planning Process for Towson High for their tireless efforts. When things were not looking optimistic, these community groups never wavered in their advocacy. For me, involvement in this effort has been a roller coaster ride with major ups and downs. Never did I lose faith, that we would be successful in securing a state-of-the-art Towson and a state-of-the-art new Dulaney.
A heartfelt thank you is due to our County Executive for following through on his commitment to the Dulaney and Towson communities. I am also thankful for the unified front of State and County elected officials who have constituents who go to Dulaney and Towson.
Today is a great day for all of those who never wavered in seeing these projects through. Dulaney and Towson are moving forward.
