Clark School alumnus W. Jeff Holtzinger, '87 civil engineering, has been elected mayor of Frederick, Md.

In his first run for elected office, Holtzinger pulled off an upset victory against a former four-term mayor.

In addition to being a licensed engineer, Holtzinger also is a lawyer. He served as assistant city engineer for Frederick from February 1999 to January 2000, when he became city engineer, a post he held until September 2002, according to The Washington Post.

"During the 2001-02 drought, Holtzinger became the go-to guy on handling a water shortage that had forced the city to impose a temporary building moratorium," according to a Washington Post article earlier this year. "He is credited with discovering that the city had long been overestimating its available supply of water and its ability to handle development. He also led the efforts to hire the city's first traffic engineer. And he warned that the city is nearing its capacity for treating wastewater."
