Afzali Announces Run for County Executive

She made the announcement Thursday.

Frederick, MD (DG)-The race for the Republican nomination for Frederick County Executive just got a little more competitive.

Kathy Afzali announced to supporters Thursday night that she is running for the county’s top position.

Afzali said she isn’t pleased with what is going on in Frederick County and wants to make a change.

“Unfortunately, here in Frederick County it becomes very personal on the county level, and I hope to end the bickering and stand up to special interests and work to make Frederick County again the best place in Maryland to live, work, and raise a family,” Afzali said.

She said she comes to the job with experience working as a delegate in Annapolis and in the private sector.

Afzali said one of the key issues that people in Frederick County are concerned about is over development. If elected, she wants to freeze property taxes and fees.
