The Observer is closely watching for candidates entering the 2024 race for Board of Education in Carroll County. A potential candidate on the radar has been Kristen Zihmer. Her name had been circulating in some circles to keep an eye on this election cycle and so her name was added to the “2024 Carroll County Board of Education Candidate Tracker” as a possible candidate.
On June 6th a Candidate Committee Registration for “Friends of Kristen Zihmer” was established. You can view the information about that committee HERE.
On June 7th The Observer upgraded the Kristen Zihmer from a “Possible” candidate to a “Likely” candidate in the “2024 Carroll County Board of Education Candidate Tracker”
At this point no campaign website or campaign social media channels have been located and no official announcement has been seen by The Observer. For this reason the status of “Likely” was assigned to Kristen Zihmer at this time.
The Observer lists two other “Likely” candidates in 2024 at this time:
As of the morning of June 7, 2023 no candidates have officially filed to run for Board of Education in Carroll County in 2024 as you can see HERE.
As a reminder…two seats on the Carroll County Board of Education will be open in 2024 (Donna M. Sivigny and Marsha B. Herbert are both term limited and can not run again for Board of Education this election cycle).
Candidate Filings begin on Thursday, January 19, 2023. The candidate filing deadline is Friday, February 9, 2024. (Get more information here: https://elections.carrollcountymd.gov/candidateFiling.aspx)
