Baltimore County Councilman Sam Moxley will not seek political office this year, he said Friday. When the Democrat announced earlier this year that he would leave the council after four terms representing Catonsville and Arbutus, he said he was considering a run for clerk of the court. He says now he has ruled that out. "I have thoroughly enjoyed my years in public service, and I will continue to look for ways to serve my community," Moxley said.

Executives from Alberee Products/SAVER Automotive on Wednesday marked the opening of the firm's new location, a 101,750-square-foot office and warehouse building in Halethorpe. The company acquired and renovated the previously vacant building with the help of $6 million in industrial revenue bonds authorized by the county. The move brought 73 jobs to Baltimore County, and a representative said the firm hoped to employ up to 150 employees within the next two years.
