Updated: Oct 24, 2022
Caylin Young (D), Nominee for State Delegate
State Legislative District: 45
By: Nick Frisone, District 46
When and why did you first get involved in politics?
I first started as an intern for Delegate Cheryl Glenn back in 2011. I had gotten involved in the neighborhood association and with some local issues and the Delegates offered me an opportunity. I was already passionate about my neighborhood and was eager to learn more about service.
Why did you run for a seat in the House of Delegates?
I knew I can do well to represent my district given my experience and understanding/knowledge of Annapolis, policy, legislation, and constituent service. I work hard and I'm results oriented. We need that right now. What are your top three issues you want to address if elected? Safety, schools, and finding ways to improve the outcomes for our young Black men.
Wes Moore, Brooke Lierman and Anthony Brown are the three statewide Dems on the ballot. How can we make sure they get elected?
Don't underestimate the Republicans and Trump.
What is your opinion of the current state of the Republican Party?
I think despite their divisions we should not underestimate them.
Favorite movie of all time and why?
Finding Nemo because it's funny. Favorite song of all time and why?
Three Little Birds by Bob Marley and the Wailers,
It always settles my soul in times of major challenges.
Two most prized possessions?
My City College class ring.
My law license.
Who inspires you? (Can be politically or personally)
I just want to help. It's Black men, young men... kids dying everyday. I can't stand it. We need to better our station in life as a group. That’s what I work for.
