Maryland State Delegate – District 04 – August Technology Scorecard

Maryland FlagThis is the first update to this scorecard since June 21st. As an FYI…I will not be continuing the State Senate District 4 Scorecard evaluations going forward. There is only one candidate doing anything at this point and does not warrant continued updates at this time.

Now on to this evaluation…

The candidates:


Gene Stanton –


Kathy Afzali (Delegate District 4A) –

Kelly Schulz (Delegate District 4A) –

David Vogt III –

The Scorecard: (Click the “Yes” or follower numbers below to view the social media page)





Gene Stanton

407 (+25)

126 (+21)


Kathy Afzali

788 (+1)

1460 (-3)


Kelly Schulz

1084 (+567)

85 (+5)


David Vogt III

1200 (+14)

5641 (-31)


Comments: Kelly Schulz did some significant improvements to her website and social media accounts. The new website and social media account look much better and I am excited to watch these accounts going forward. Kelly now has over 1,000 Facebook followers which is a significant gain over the old page. This team really needs to work to strengthen their Twitter presence as they trail all other candidates in this race.

Gene Stanton added the most new Twitter followers since the last evaluation. This team is still trailing the other candidates and continued use and further promotion will be important going forward.

Neither Kathy Afzali nor David Vogt made significant follower gains on Facebook. Both candidates ended up with net losses in Twitter followers since the last evaluation. I am sure this is not what they had hoped for after the Primary.

Here is a look at the Facebook activity over the past week of the candidate pages in this race: (Kelly Schulz by far had the best week on Facebook with follower engagement).

At this point I would have to say that all three Republican candidates hold the technology outreach lead in this race today. I will continue to watch the trends going forward and may rethink this if the new follower trends continues as it has over the past couple of evaluations.
