Kavonté Duckett Seeks Democratic Nomination for County At-Large Seat

A Heart for the Community As a lifelong Fredericktonian, I was raised by a village of people that included my parents, extended family, friends, neighbors, teachers, mentors, and others who took interest in my well-being (many who are members of Asbury UMC).
