About Carol Krimm
I am running for office to continue my advocacy for Maryland working families. Maryland will be making enhanced commitments and investments in our children through our public education system during this next term. I will be on the Appropriations Committee advocating for this critical funding for classroom instruction and teachers. Although Frederick County is growing with a bright future, we must address infrastructure needs in roads and transit. My position on the Transportation and Environment subcommittee, provides me a forum to fight for our transportation needs as well as represent Frederick’s farming community.
