The sudden departure of John Kroll, former head of finance for Frederick County, raises a few questions. Both Kroll and County Commissioner David Gray say that Kroll was forced out. Exactly what that means, we don’t know. There are a number of possible explanations. It is also not totally clear exactly why this happened. Gray and Kroll himself believe that he was cut loose because a member of his department challenged Commissioners President Blaine Young’s assertion that the county has a significant structural budget problem that requires serious budget-cutting.
