The Commissioners of St. Mary’s County (CSMC) are pleased to announce David Yingling’s appointment as Deputy County Administrator.

“We are very excited to have Captain Yingling taking on this new role,” said Commissioner President, James Randy Guy. “We have the fullest confidence that his dedication to excellence and to our community will continue to serve our residents.”

“David brings a wealth of experience to the table and is already well-versed in many county government programs. I look forward to working with him more closely and welcome him wholeheartedly to the team!” said David Weiskopf, County Administrator.

Mr. Yingling began his career with St. Mary’s County in 1998 as a Deputy Sheriff for the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office (SMCSO).
