Young To Step Down As Frederick County Board Of Ed President


He’s throwing his support to Jay Mason.

Frederick, Md (KM) Frederick County School Board President Brad Young is stepping from his current position, but he will remain a member of the Board of Education. In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Young says after seven years, it’s time to turn the gavel over to someone else.

“There is no greater service one can do than serving public education on the Board,” Young says. “I have given a lot to our Board and being President is a lot of work and time.”

Young was first elected to the Board of Education in 2010, and served as President in 2010 and from 2014-2019. “I am proud of what we have done,” he said. “I understand not everyone will agree with me and that’s fine. As Board President, I have always tried to be honest, accessible and fair.”

He says he’s backing Jay Mason for the position of President. The Board of Ed will choose its new officers in December.

But Young says he has two years left on his current term, and he will continue to be an active board member.
