Candidate for Maryland Governor passes away

Md. Democratic candidate for governor dies hours after candidates' forum

Baltimore County Executive and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Kevin Kamenetz has died following a cardiac arrest, according to multiple reports.

Ehrlich remembers going back and forth with Kamenetz in high school at 16 years-old in political club meetings, the club Kamenetz was president of. He was serving his second term since initially being elected Baltimore County executive in December 2010.

After he awakened around 2 a.m. EDT at his Owings Mills home and complaining of feeling ill, Kamenetz and his wife drove to a volunteer fire station less than two miles away, county officials told the media.

"Our hearts go out to his wife Jill and their two sons, and the many who cherished his friendship, easy smile and determined spirit", Pugh tweeted.




In an e-mail sent to TheBayNet, Governor Larry Hogan issued the following statement: "The First Lady and I are saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz this morning". The County Council will now be required to vote on a replacement to serve the remaining seven months of Kamenetz's term.

Gov. Hogan ordered state flags to be flown at half-staff in memory of Kamenetz. "In the hard days to come, we will provide any support we possibly can to the Kamenetz family and the citizens of Baltimore County". "As much as Kevin was advocating for what was best for Baltimore County, he was also always looking out for all Marylanders". County Executive Kamenetz was a dedicated public servant who gave 24 years of service to Baltimore County.

Ehrlich served as governor from 2003 to 2007 after representing Maryland in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In a statement, Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker called word of Kamenetz's passing "shocking and sad".
