Frederick City Alderwoman Carol Krimm was hit with an unexpected question during an interview over the weekend with WFMD News. She was asked who she wanted to be the next Mayor for the City of Frederick. "Well, that's a loaded question. I am a concensus builder. I seem to have a good relationship with everybody. I am a Democrat, so I will support the ticket.
Former Mayor Jennifer Dougherty is running as an unaffiliated candidate. Former Mayor Jeff Holtzinger, a Republican, has said he, too, is considering another run. Delegate Galen Clagett and Alderwoman Karen Young have both announced they will seek the Democratic Party's nomination . Mayor Randy McClement is the only Republican, seeking re-election.
Krimm says she will also take a leap into politics. She's considering a run for State Delegate, representing District 3A. " I need to get my campaign account up and running. But I felt that it was a little confusing for people right now, to be on the campaign trail for that office, while the city election is going on, considering I'm an Alderman," continued Krimm. Her platform will include public education, transportation, the environment and improving senior citizen issues, she said.
