Round two of finance report numbers…this time for candidates that are running for Howard County Board of Education in 2018. Currently we only have five declared candidates…so those are the numbers I am reporting in this post. Here is what was reported:
|Board of Education||Starting Balance||Amount Raised||Amount Spent||Cash Balance|
- Rehman has the most cash…in a big way right now.
- Miller spent more money than he raised in this latest filing…that trend can not continue for him.
- Pandey and Taj have not been in this race for very long…so they both can (and should) improve on future reports.
- The money burn rate for Wu is a bit high compared to the amount raised. This is something to keep an eye one.
As a reminder…Miller received the all important HCEA endorsement recently….and that is big for him!
I am expecting somewhere between 3 and 7 additional candidates to get into the race before the filing deadline late next month…so this is a race to watch in Howard County. Keep updated with the candidates running here: https://scotteblog.com/2018-howard-county-board-of-education-reference-card/

Post Update January 20, 2018: As folks have made a lot of comments about how much money is out there in this race…I wanted to share what the money looked like back in January of 2016:
