Montgomery County Council Member Andrew Friedson announced on Wednesday that he plans to run for re-election to his District 1 seat.
Friedson, 35, was first elected in 2018. He said he wants to spend his second term focused on “building on the work we’ve started” in the past four years enhancing residents’ quality of life, creating a more competitive local economy, improving housing affordability and honing the county’s focus on fiscal responsibility.
During his first term, Friedson, a Democrat, was a consistent advocate for fiscal responsibility within the county government, sponsoring a bill that requires an “economic impact statement” for all new county legislation. He also pushed for regular financial reviews of county agencies, monetary relief programs for residents during the COVID-19 pandemic and strengthening county ethics laws.
Friedson grew up in Montgomery County, and graduated from Winston Churchill High School in Potomac.
