Siddiqui to fill vacant seat
Ulman Appoints Janet Siddiqui, M.D., to Howard County Board of Education
If Mary Kay Sigaty had resigned prior to the election – in anticipation of a win – Dr. Siddiqui would have been elected outright as the 6th place vote getter.
Using that logic, this is a reasonable and “voter friendly” appointment.
As it happens, Dr. Siddiqui is all the very nice things being said about her – kind, caring, intelligent, – and I believe truly committed to children’s issues …. and without any obvious agenda or alternate political ambitions.
I offer my warmest congratulations to Dr. Siddiqui – and look forward to seeing her assert a deliberate presence – and a backbone – on the BOE in the interest of the children it serves.
