Proud father, business owner and young progressive are three characteristics that Ben MacShane, a Democratic candidate for the Frederick Board of Aldermen, says he is proud to possess.

The 36-year-old owner of Frederick-based Principled Contracting, a construction business that does commercial renovations, is a political newcomer who broke into the scene with a bid for the Board of Aldermen this year. He earned the fourth-highest number of votes in the Democratic primary and is running an aggressive general election campaign.

MacShane joins hosts News-Post city reporter Mallory Panuska and city editor Danielle Gaines to discuss his candidacy.
