The City of Frederick is a wonderful safe place you want to call home and raise your children - electing Karen Young as mayor will help make certain it stays this way.
Karen Young is a strategic visionary leader who understands the mayor articulates the vision and leads the effort to move The City of Frederick forward to become an interconnected and sustainable community where families desire to live.
Her goal to make Frederick a regional economic hub is admirable and will help parents reduce their costly commute allowing them to be able to spend more quality time with their children.
Whether it is economic development, public safety, education, transportation or other issues facing the city, Karen understands the need to work with all levels of government. Her time spent working with the Maryland Municipal League, The Washington Council of Governments and the Maryland General Assembly has prepared her well in this regard.
Karen’s extensive experience in the public/private sector has given her the knowledge and training to ensure the city is using the best practices when it comes to human resources, risk mitigation, organization design and investment management.
She will use her financial analysis and management background to help right-size the city budget that has grown by 98% over the last ten years.
Furthermore, her term as alderman helps her understand the need to work early and often with the board of alderman to move an agenda forward.
