Rose Fred­er­ick was born and raised in St. Mary’s County, and at­tended lo­cal Catholic and pub­lic schools in the county.

She has a grad­u­ate de­gree in Man­age­ment and is a GS-15 level re­tiree from the U.S. Depart­ment of the Navy af­ter 35 years of ded­i­cated ser­vice. She be­gan her ser­vice as a GS-2 cler­i­cal em­ployee and ended her 35-year ca­reer as a depart­ment head for not only the bud­get­ing depart­ment, of which she was a sub­ject mat­ter ex­pert, but she also led the pro­cure­ment and lo­gis­tics de­part­ments.

She has worked in the trenches. Rose has given of her time vol­un­teer­ing at schools and lo­cal boards and com­mit­tees such as chair­ing the St. Mary’s County Depart­ment of So­cial Ser­vices Board; serv­ing as trea­surer for the Mary­land As­so­ci­a­tion of So­cial Ser­vices Boards (a state-level po­si­tion); and serv­ing as vice pres­i­dent of the South­ern Mary­land Cen­ter for In­de­pen­dent Liv­ing. She has been a higher ed­u­ca­tion board mem­ber and served on sev­eral other boards and com­mit­tees.

She is more than qual­i­fied to be a county com­mis­sioner, and you can be­lieve she will work across lines and with the St. Mary’s County state del­e­gates and se­na­tor to get things done. She is no slacker, and county projects will be well thought out un­der the anal­y­sis of Rose’s eyes. Vote for her Nov. 6.
