Eight Howard County school board candidates advance
Eight school board hopefuls are one step closer to having one of the four seats on the Howard County Board of Education, according to unofficial primary election results.
Vicky Cutroneo, Bob Glascock, Robert Wayne Miller, Chao Wu, Jen Mallo, Sabina Taj, Danny Mackey and Anita Pandey were the top eight winners among 13 candidates in Tuesday’s primary.
Cutroeno has 19,991 votes, Glascock has 16,951 votes, Miller has 15,968 votes, Wu has 15,047 votes, Mallo has 13,080 votes, Taj has 12,849 votes, Mackey has 9,685 votes and Pandey has 9,666 votes, with 97.6 percent of the votes reported.
The remaining five candidates are Carleen Pena with 8,020 votes, Saif Rehman with 7,307 votes and Mavourene Robinson with 5,634 votes, Timothy Hodgson Hamilton with 3,579 votes, Christopher Michael Hilfiger with 3,071 votes with 97.6 percent of the votes reported.
- How sad the two shadow candidates ( Timothy Hamilton, Christopher Hilfiger) can still get more than 6500 votes.
- I got 47 extra votes over 15000. We got a higher voter turnout this year than 2014. In the 2014 BOE primary, the No. 4 candidate received around 12000 votes. 47 is a small number. However 47 votes could flip District 1 County Council race this year. Now incumbent Jon Weinstein led his challenger Liz Walsh by 41 votes. When the absentee and provisional votes come in, we will see how it play out. Every vote counts.
