Town to swear in youngest mayor in Maryland history

INDIAN HEAD — A Maryland town will swear in the youngest mayor in the state’s history Tuesday.

Multiple news outlets report 19-year-old Brandon Paulin will become mayor of Indian Head, a town of about 4,000 residents on the Potomac River Tuesday. Paulin is a political science major at the College of Southern Maryland. During the election on May 5, he was up against the town’s current mayor and vice mayor. Paulin won with 239 of the 383 votes cast.

The mayor-elect said his first plan of action will be to get accustomed to the job, then he will get to work fulfilling his campaign promises, which include breathing new life into some of the town’s vacant buildings, encouraging more businesses to move in and improving city events.
