My sincere thanks to you and so many others for supporting my campaign to represent District 6 on our county’s Board of Education. The past few weeks have been a blur, talking with voters during early voting and on Election Day, engaging in lively Facebook Live discussions on the issues our schools face, and participating in virtual candidate forums. It has been an amazing experience meeting new people and learning their concerns about the future of Anne Arundel County schools.
Official election results won’t be finalized for several weeks to ensure that all mail-in ballots have time to reach the Board of Elections. As of Election Night, the results are extremely encouraging and momentum appears to be with us! With mail-in, early voting and Election Day votes counted, I have won 55.2% of the vote while my opponent has won 44.1%.
While I am just as eager as you are to know the final results, I am also filled with such gratitude for you and others who have chosen to cast votes for me.
Stay tuned… Stay safe and be well.
