Here are my takeaways from the scorecard above:

OK…no more rants…just reporting the numbers this month.

Vanessa Atterbeary had the best month on Facebook adding almost 30 new followers and continues to hold a commanding advantage over the other candidates on this platform.

Jimmy Williams added the most new Twitter followers and continues his overall lead on that platform.

The new stuff – Jimmy Williams now has an Instagram account. Nayab Siddiqui is listing a Facebook page with over 120 followers. Vanessa Atterbeary has a YouTube channel with one video that has over 100 views. It was nice to find so much new technology outreach in this race.

I still can’t say one candidate is significantly better than everyone else, but I will say my top two are Vanessa Atterbeary and Jimmy Williams.

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.
