Frederick Mayoral Democratic candidate, Karen Young, continues to receive ringing endorsements from Maryland's top elected officials. Governor Martin O'Malley said, "Karen Young‘s service as President Pro Tem of the Frederick Board of Alderman has been phenomenal. Her impressive vision for Frederick’s future is just right; a vision that continues to foster smart sustainable growth in historic downtown, while also revitalizing other neighborhoods throughout the city. Her skill of understanding the multiple challenges and opportunities our cities face today, balanced with her ability to offer forward thinking ideas is vital for progress. The City of Frederick is one of Maryland’s most celebrated towns, and Karen has worked tirelessly on behalf of the moms, dads and families that call Frederick home. As Mayor, she will ensure that good work continues."
Lt. Governor Brown said he was certain that Karen's private sector experience coupled with her dedication to local non-profits give her the skills she needs to bring Frederick to the next level: "As more and more families choose to call Frederick home, the city needs a Mayor who has the ability to lead a large, diverse team and balance the needs of a community looking to preserve its heritage while growing in new and exciting ways. That leader is Karen Young, whose combination of private sector experience and dedication to local, neighborhood based non-profits and causes have given her the tools she’ll need to succeed. She’s focused on keeping every neighborhood in Frederick safe, creating good-paying local jobs, and protecting our natural resources, all while maintaining a commitment to fiscal health and responsibility. She’s the best choice, and the right choice, for Frederick."
