It is official, on June 2nd the entire “Team 13” filed for reelection. Team 13 includes Guy Guzzone (Senate), Frank Turner (Delegate), Shane Pendergrass (Delegate) and Vanessa Atterbeary (Delegate). I checked the State Board of Elections website and they are all now listed: CLICK HERE
Now the question is will anyone put up a serious challenge to this “slate” of candidates in District 13? They are a tough out but votes on things like redistricting by some of the members on this slate could make for some interesting conversations during this election cycle.
The only other current elected official from Howard County to officially file is Warren Miller (Delegate 9A). No word on anyone in District 12 yet (although I expect them all to run for reelection as well).
There is some word about District 9B being an interesting race again in 2018. Still waiting on an official announcement from potential candidates considering getting into the race. When I hear something official, I will be sure to let you all know.
That is all I have for this morning…more to follow soon.
