BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. — Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski has announced that Sean Naron will be joining his leadership team as press secretary.

He will be succeeding TJ Smith, who has decided to explore other opportunities.

Naron, who most recently served as a press secretary to Dr. Leana Wen at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, is a Baltimore County native and graduate of Dulaney High School. Naron previously worked as communications directors 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 the media.

"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," said Olszewski. "I'm thrilled to have him return to our team as we continue implementing our vision for a better Baltimore County."

Smith, who has served in the role of press secretary since January 2019, will depart the county executive's office on October 4.

"I've enjoyed working and learning from Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski," said Smith. "And I look forward to my future endeavors."

Smith also said that he will be making a big announcement soon.
