Barcoding, Inc. CEO Jay Steinmetz Brings People Together with Politics

You may know Barcoding, Inc. CEO, Jay Steinmetz, as the BarcodeMan, but did you also know that he’s contributing to the political ecosystem in Maryland?

Steinmetz was recently featured on Inside the Headlines, a video politicast featured on Center Maryland with host Damian O’Doherty.

By hosting “salons” in his Mt. Washington home, Steinmetz brings people from all across the political spectrum together to discuss possible solutions to Maryland’s challenges. By having a conversation with leaders from varying industries, it creates multiple frames of reference—if there’s no common dialogue, we aren’t learning anything from each other. The salons create a casual environment to understand where people are coming from.

The next salons will feature the Mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the Political Director of the Maryland Democratic Party, Chuck Cook.

I would recommend that everybody take time, coordinate an event, sit down before an election as a group and review the referendums and politicians and hold them accountable—because this is your country, your state and if you don’t do that, the consequences are your own fault,” said Steinmetz.
