Howard County Board of Education Write-In Candidate (in District 4) Julie Hotopp will join Scott E’s Blog for a “Chat with the Candidate” event on September 12th at 11:30am.

This event will be Live Streamed to Scott E’s Blog Facebook page, a blog article with the video embeded will be written after the event for the readers of the blog not on Facebook and the interview will be on Scott E’s Blog Podcast channel.

I expect the event to run for 30 to 45 minutes. Here is a link to the event on Facebook for those that need a reminder (like I do):

I will be asking the candidate a number of questions during this event. If you have some questions for this or any of the candidate events be sure to send those to me at and I will see if I can fit them in to the discussions.

I have officially given up on holding a forum / debate for all of the candidates in District 4 based on a recent Facebook post from one of the candidates. It is disappointing that I could not bring that event to the readers and followers of this blog and those in our community. Hopefully another entity will have better luck than I did this election cycle.

I am working on additional “Chat with the Candidate” and “Candidate Forum / Debates” events during September. Here are the other scheduled events on the calendar as of this post:

I will mention again that ALL candidates are invited to participate in the forums or Chat with the Candidate sessions. If interested, be sure to reach out soon so we can get you on the calendar before the end of September.
