The Princess Anne Town Commission has a new member.

He’s 23-year old Lionel Frederic, a UMES student, who ousted former town manager Jay Parker in Tuesday’s election by a vote of 127-to-93.

Parker’s seat was the only one that was contested.

When asked about the upset victory Frederic told the Salisbury Daily Times said it was a great election on both sides.

Frederic is believed to be the youngest person ever to be elected to the Town Commission and his win comes despite critics citing the three weekends he spent in jail for diving without a license and eluding.

In a separate incident he paid a $500 in court fine for a possession of marijuana charge
