This is my part 4 of a 7 part series on campaign finance reports for elected officials in Howard County. This post looks at Maryland State Senators from Districts 9 (Katie Hester), 12 (Clarence Lam) and 13 (Guy Guzzone).

I am going to look at something a little different in my analysis for this post. I will still give you the summary numbers…but I want to focus on the “Other” kind of money these elected officials get…specifically the amount of PAC money these elected officials receive after getting elected. Trust me…that is the story of these financial filings (at least it was the thing that stood out to me).

Here is the summary data:

Here is the PAC money raised by the Maryland State Senators noted in this article:

  • Clarence Lam pulled in $9,750
