As a candidate for office, I have long realized that there could be misinformation spread about me. Last night, I found out, to my surprise, that I was running for County Council in 2018.
At the Ellicott City Western HoCo Democratic forum last winter, we were asked a series of Yes/No questions. One of them was whether we would run for another office while on the Board of Education (if elected). I indicated I would not run. Some were surprised by our responses. I know that the Board of Ed is perceived as a stepping stone to other offices. But I am really passionate about education and the state of HCPSS.
Yes, I’m getting involved in county issues as a member of the Town Center Village Board, which I enjoy.
Yes, some people thought I might run in 2018, which was flattering.
But, I’m not running for County Council in 2018.
