Maryland State Delegate – District 12 – April Technology Scorecard

Howard County DistrictsMaryland State Delegate District 12 has so many candidates…wow this scorecard just takes some time for me to evaluate it. It makes it even more difficult that not all of the candidates list all of their social media outreach on their campaign websites. I seriously will never understand why that is the case.

Now on to the evaluation…

Here are my takeaways from the scorecard above:

Terri Hill and Nick Stewart added the most new followers on Facebook over the past month. Brian Bailey continues to hold a significant follower advantage in this race.

Brian Bailey and Clarence Lam continue to hold the follower lead on Twitter and Bailey added the most new followers over the past month. Adam Sachs now lists his Twitter account on his website.

I did not find any new outreach from these candidates from what was reported back in March (read it here: https://scottesoftware.wordpress.com/2014/03/17/maryland-state-delegate-district-12-march-technology-scorecard/)

I will continue to choose Bailey as my technology outreach leader. His overall follower lead on Facebook and the new Twitter followers obtained keep him in that position. I am torn on the number two position this month. I am going to call it a draw between Lam, Stewart and Hill. All have their positives and negatives in regards to outreach but they seem to be the group getting the most social media attention along with Bailey.

Marshmallow ManLocal blogger (Marshmallow Man) recently posted his endorsements in this race. You can read it here: http://53beersontap.typepad.com/53beers/2014/04/four-democrats-for-the-12th.html

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.
