Politicians react to the death of Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz died of cardiac arrest early in the morning of May 10.

A Democratic candidate for governor of Maryland has died at 60 years old, reports say.

Baltimore County officials said Kamenetz woke up in his Owings Mills home at 2 a.m. and felt sick.

He was transported by the Garrison Fire Station's Medic 19 to St. Joseph, where doctors pronounced him deceased at 3:22 a.m. The County Council will now be required to vote on a replacement to serve the remaining seven months of Kamenetz's term. "My prayers are with his family during this hard time".

Gov. Larry Hogan (R) ordered flags be lowered today through sunset on the day of Kamenetz's interment.

In 2010, he was elected as Baltimore County's 12th County Executive, and was reelected in 2014.

During his campaign for governor, Kamenetz had selected former Montgomery County Council member Valerie Ervin as his running mate.

Kamenetz, who had been in local and state politics for almost 25 years, had strong name recognition and a good track record in his jurisdiction. The Democratic politician was a candidate in the 2018 Maryland Gubernatorial Election before his sudden death.

Hogan called Kamenetz "a dedicated public servant in Baltimore County for more than two decades".

The night before Kamenetz died, he participated in a candidate forum in Prince George's County, Maryland, alongside other Democratic gubernatorial candidates. The governor said he and his wife are "shocked and grieved" by the county executive's death. "Our prayers go out to his family and many loved ones this morning".

"Kevin Kamenetz's passing is a tremendous loss for Maryland".

Kamenetz is survived by his wife and two sons.
