Maryland FlagThe big new news of this race is that I was able to find a website and social media outreach for Barrie Ciliberti. I guess better late than never.

Here are my takeaways from the scorecard above:

Wendi Peters continues to make significant gains on Facebook. She gained nearly 100 new followers over the past month and now holds the overall follower lead on Facebook.

Gene Stanton added the second most new Facebook followers and is really starting to show some momentum on that platform. This is a great sign for this team.

Nice to see some social media outreach from Barrie Ciliberti. 85 Facebook followers is a nice start. I look forward to seeing how this team uses social media over the next month for outreach prior to the primary.

On Twitter, no one candidate really stood out. Peters, Afzali and Stanton were all pretty equal in adding new followers.

David Vogt once again lost more followers on Twitter than they added resulting in a net loss of 20 followers. It is hard a gage what affect that will have going into the primary but they can not be thrilled with the optic of losing followers.

I love seeing Wendi Peters on Google+…my one recommendation is more updates going forward on that platform. Also would be a good idea to add the link to your website.

As far as an overall technology outreach leader I am leaning towards Wendi Peters. The trends of adding new followers over the past few months and the total platforms for outreach gives her the edge in my book right now.

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.
