PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (AP) — A University of Maryland Eastern Shore student has unseated an incumbent to win a seat on the Princess Anne Town Council.
The Daily Times reports Lionel Frederic, 23, won the seat in the town election Tuesday, ousting former town manager Jay Parker.
Election chairwoman Kelly Salyers says Frederic is the youngest elected town official in memory.
Frederic won despite critics who pointed out his run-ins with law enforcement. He served three weekends in county jail in 2012 after a traffic conviction for driving without a license and eluding. Separately, he paid $500 in fines for a charge of marijuana possession.
Frederic has said he has moved on from his past.
