Frederick Alderman Roger Wilson has been elected as the new president of Frederick County's chapter of the Maryland Municipal League after serving as vice president since 2017.

Wilson will replace the current chapter president, Brunswick Mayor Jeffrey Snoots, in June. Brunswick Councilman Vaughn Ripley will become vice president.

Along with being an alderman since 2018, Wilson previously worked as director of Government Affairs and Policy for County Executive Jan Gardner, before leaving the position in November.

The MML represents 157 municipal and two special taxing districts in the state.

Alderman Wilson, Congratulations, I hope you and your efforts can help Maryland municipalities like Frederick City move into the 21st Century and the need to join the digital world. Without significant improvement in City efficiency and use of trackable data, local government like ours will not be sustainable and will continue with increased taxes and lower and less responsive services. .
