We got our 8th candidate running for Howard County Board of Education – Jen Mallo. She filed earlier today.
Here is a little information from her website:

Jen has lived in Columbia with her husband, Ted, for more than 25 years.  They have three children, two of whom are in college and one still attending Wilde Lake High School.
Jen has been a community advocate and leader in the field of education since her kids began preschool.  For nearly 20 years, Jen has worked with  classrooms and schools while her kids attended Swansfield ES, Harper’s Choice MS, and Wilde Lake HS.
Jen recently finished two years as the elected chairperson of HCPSS’s Community Advisory Council.  See below for more details about Jen’s advocacy.
Jen is also an avid photographer, voracious reader, and amateur hiker.

I will be adding the online outreach resource to the Board of Education reference card in just a little bit.
Will we get more candidates today? Stay tuned.
