Delegate Pippy elected Chairman of the Delegation
"A second-year delegate and longtime state senator were elected Saturday morning to lead the Frederick County delegation, which starts its next session in Annapolis next month. Del. Jesse Pippy (R-District 4) and Sen. Ron Young (D-District 3) will serve as chair and vice chair respectively.
During the delegation’s meeting and public hearing at Winchester Hall, Pippy said the group will focus on working together, as it is split between Republicans and Democrats, which closely mirrors current voter registration statistics countywide. “It’s a big responsibility,” Pippy said after the meeting about his new role. “But as long as we’re putting the people first ... and listening more than talking, then we should be in good shape.”
