Maryland Governor Candidate Kevin Kamenetz Dies of Heart Attackā€

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz died this morning of cardiac arrest. He was 60-years-old and leaves behind a wife and two teenage sons.

As per funeral home conducting funeral services: On May 10, 2018, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz; beloved husband of Jill Kamenetz (nee Hoffberger); devoted father of Karson and Dylan Kamenetz; cherished brother of Sylvia Scherr, Sonna (Michael) Kalis, Rodger Kamenetz (Moira Crone), and Gregory (Doris) Kamenetz; loving son of the late Irvin and Miriam Kamenetz; dear son-in-law of Gail Margolis and Dr. Allen Judman. He was transported by ambulance to St. Joesph Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 3 a.m. this morning.

Administrative officer Fred Homan will serve as acting county executive until the council votes on a replacement to serve the remainder of the term.

He was first elected county executive in 2010 and re-elected in 2014.

Jealous said Kamenetz had "dedicated his life to public service, to making a difference and he helped to move Maryland forward". Kamenetz had raised more money than his Democratic rivals and was considered a strong contender for the June 26 primary. "In the hard days to come, we will provide any support we possibly can to the Kamenetz family and the citizens of Baltimore County", the statement said. Prior to that, he served as a Baltimore County Council member for 16 years.

Gov. Hogan ordered state flags to be flown at half-staff in memory of Kamenetz. Here's how local political figures, leaders and organizations were reacting. "Our prayers go out to his family and many loved ones this morning", Hogan tweeted.

A Democratic candidate for governor of Maryland has died. Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker, who attended the forum Wednesday night with Kamenetz, said in a statement he was "stunned" by the news and offered his condolences to Kamenetz, his family and the people of Baltimore County.
