Elections 2017

The Frederick County Democrats heartily congratulate Donna Kuzemchak, Ben MacShane, Kelly Russell, Derek Shackelford, and Roger Wilson, our Democratic nominees for Frederick City aldermen, and to Michael O'Connor, our nominee for mayor. We also wish to thank Jennifer Dougherty, Todd Anderson, Jeannette Bartelt, Antonio Bowens, Kris Fair, and Kim Williams for their willingness to serve, and we know we haven't heard the last of any of these fine Dems. Everyone ran positive, issues-oriented campaigns of which we can all be proud!

The City of Frederick will be holding their general elections for Mayor and Aldermen in November 2017.
