Comments: Delegate Miller added the most new Facebook followers over the past month and now holds the follower lead on that platform. He has also been one of the more active candidates on social media (although I still believe the this team is not active enough).

Ward Morrow made decent gains on Facebook and Twitter. He was moderately active on Facebook (but again, more posts would not hurt going forward) and not very active at all on Twitter.

Carson and Kittleman did not add many new followers since the last evaluation.

Just a little note for the GOP candidates – it might be a good idea to list your Facebook page on your campaign websites. This little addition could drive more followers to your social media sites.

I am hoping all of these candidates are holding back and will look to make push over the final two months before the election date.

Here is a look at the Facebook activity over the past week of the candidate pages in this race: (Click photo for full size)

Delegate 9A Facebook activity September

Wally Carson edged out all candidates in Facebook engagement over the past week followed closely by Delegate Miller.

I am still going with Ward Morrow as the overall technology outreach leader in this race. There is no question that increased activity has made Delegate Miller my number two candidate in this race. Based on trends he could take over the top spot if he continues to show more engagement and new follower strength in next months evaluation.

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.

HoCoBlogsThere is a great event next week to meet and mingle with Howard County bloggers and blog readers. I highly recommend it for all local candidates: HoCoBlogs Party at Nottingham’s – Sept 9th
