I recently wrote a “Listing of Howard County Board of Education Candidate Forums and Events in 2020” and wanted to highlight one of those upcoming events…the HoCoBOE candidate forum happening on February 16th in Elkridge. Here is information via the Facebook event:

Please join us at the Board of Education candidate forum. Come to ask questions and assess candidates. The forum is jointly hosted by Chinese American Political Association (CAPA) PAC, Howard County Families for Education Improvement (FEI), Howard County Neighbors United, Indian Origin Network of Howard County (IONHoCo), Scott E’s Blog and HoCo Kids.

I really like the format of having the candidates broken up by districts at different times. This means the candidates and attendees do not have to be at the location all afternoon (unless they want to be).

I like the number of organizations that have come together to agree to support and promote this event on February 16th.

There will be a great number of candidate events between now and late April and this is one I am happy to support and attend. I will have the camera and will be getting a lot of photos for the blog (may even do some video recordings or live streaming).

Be sure to add this event to your calendar if you are interested in hearing from the various HoCoBOE candidates running in 2020.

Here is a map to the event location:
