The two term delegate is running for county executive
Delegate Kathy Afzali is running for Frederick County Executive against Democratic County Executive Jan Gardner in the General Election.
Afzali is a mom, small business owner and has served as Delegate for 8 years.
“I was unhappy with some of the representation in Frederick County, so I ran for Delegate in 2010, having no prior political experience,” says Afzali. “I’m (still) not sure how I won. I took the oath of office in 2011 and I served two consecutive terms.”
Delegate Afzali explains why she’s running for Frederick County Executive.
“Increasingly in the last three and a half years, I became disenchanted with who had been elected under the new charter form of government in Frederick County,” she says. “I thought that I could do a better job, and isn’t that why we run for office? To do a better job then what’s there now.”
Delgate Afzali says if elected, her top three priorites will be getting a handle on development, controlling high property taxes, and focusing on a slow, responsible and dilberate approach to growth in Frederick County.
The general election is on November 6th.
