FREDERICK, Md. (AP) Voters in Frederick are going to the polls to choose a new mayor and at least two new aldermen.

The mayoral race Tuesday pits Republican Randy McClement, a downtown delicatessen owner, against Democrat Jason Judd, an economist with the Service Employees International Union.

Judd has made job creation a top priority and says he will ensure that the city's older neighborhoods are not forgotten amid the push for growth through annexation.

McClement aims to create a new city police headquarters. He also wants a downtown hotel and conference center in the city of 59,000.

There are also elections in Greenbelt, Rockville and Annapolis.
