Larry Pretlow announced on Twitter today that he plans to challenge Opel Jones in the Democratic Primary in 2022 for the Howard County Council District 2 seat that Jones just won (see image above).

Pretlow lost in the Democratic Primary for Maryland State Delegate in District 13 (coming in 4th of 4 candidates receiving just over 3,000 votes – 9.4%).

Pretlow is a current member of the Oakland Mills Community Association Village Board:

Pretlow crossed party lines providing endorsements in 2018 for:

  • Allan Kittleman (R) – County Executive
  • John Liao (R) – Howard County Council District 2

As well as a number of candidates running for Howard County Board of Education:

I know it is super early to start talking about 2022…and a lot of things can change in the next 3 1/2 years…but this might be worth watching to see how it all plays out between now and then in District 2.
