Frederick Mayor Assessing ‘State Of City’
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Frederick Mayor Randy McClement is moving to reassert his priorities 19 months into his first, four-year term.
McClement plans to make a “State of the City” speech Thursday afternoon. He says he’ll highlight his accomplishments and present his vision for the future.
Some city aldermen say McClement hasn’t kept them informed about his administration’s activities.
The Republican mayor also has been under pressure to show progress toward his goal of bringing a downtown conference center to the city.
McClement has had to publicly explain City Hall’s failure to reach a collective bargaining agreement with city police officers. Their last contract expired June 30 with McClement saying the city has no money for salary increases.
