Here are my takeaways from the scorecard above:

On Facebook – Chisholm had the best month adding new followers. Kipke and Drgos also did a good job adding new followers. I was able to find a Facebook page for Simonaire but the link is not on her website yet. Dwyer is still listing a personal page.

On Twitter – Kipke had the best month adding new followers. Drgos did a nice job coming in second as far as adding new Twitter followers. Chisholm and Dwyer did a nice job also.

I really think more outreach is needed from many of the candidates. This might make for a good read: Social Media Mistakes By Political Candidates – Part 1 – Outreach

Of course the reality of followers, likes, and subscribers does not mean a lot when it comes down to voting in the end, but it is a fun exercise to do and makes a great resource for following all of these candidates.
