GOP Central Committee Results

Posted by David Keelan on Tuesday, September 19, 2006

Nothing earth shattering here.  I noticed that new numbers are coming in that are changing the results a bit.  The new numbers are consistent with what was initially reported and the make up of the Central Committee will probably not change.

Here are highlights of the changes.

  • 1465 new votes have been added.
  • Loretta Shields was leading John Winters by 7 votes and now trails by 4 votes.  Both will still be on the Central Committee.
  • Joan Becker, Trent Kittleman and John Wafer are holding steady.
  • David Keelan, Brian Harlin and Ed Patrick ticked up a notch.
  • John Bailey, Bob Ballinger, Sandi Harriman and Heather Mitchell ticked down a notch

Nothing at this point is going to change the results.  This is just an interesting footnote.

Democratic County Council 1 Results

Posted by David Keelan on Tuesday, September 19, 2006

Evan brought up a good point with the Ulman v Dunbar race.

Looking at the numbers for the County Council District 1 Democratic Primary I am curious as to why the former Chairman of the Board of Education got such a large under vote.

Granted it wasn’t as poor at Don Dunn in District 5 but District 5 is not a swing district.

Of the 5323 votes cast in this district Courtney Watson only got 3742 votes (70%) in an uncontested primary.  Coupled with the fact that District 1 had the 2nd highest turn out of Democratic voters among the County Council races (uncontested and contested).

These are just the overall numbers, but I wonder if this apparent weakness will prove out when we look at the precinct level results.

I bring to your attention Evan Coran’s (the Howard County Blog) perspective on the Dunbar v Ulman matchup.
