In the 2022 election cycle this SLATE account was active for the Board of Education race and it remains active, received funding and spent money in early 2023…so I thought I would list it here today just in case it is something to watch:

Slate for Carroll County Citizens United

  • Starting Balance: $425.20
  • Total Receipts: $500.00
  • Total Expenditures: $125.00
  • Cash Balance: $800.20
  • Value of In-Kind Contributions: $0.00
  • Outstanding Bills Due: $1,151.96

Notable contributions:

  • Republican Central Committee of Carroll Co.: $500.00

Note: My guess is that this Slate entity will not be active during the 2024 election cycle as the “affiliated” candidates are not active at this time (Whisler, Battaglia, Miller and Maerten)


Observations from The Observer:

If you look at this race in terms of teams (Greg & Kristen vs Muri & Amanda) there is a big gap in early campaign funding/receipts per these reports:

  • Greg & Kristen: $33,567.97
  • Muri & Amanda + SLATE: $7,443.50

Greg and Kristen have received funding from current elected officials, a former elected official and various political clubs from around the county. This type of support could be significant this election cycle…for all of the candidates running and something The Observer will keep a close eye on going forward.

If you look across all the reports combined for the 4 candidates and the Slate:

  • Total money raised: $41,011.47
  • Total money spent: $7,659.00
  • Total cash on hand for this race: $37,157.99

This is a VERY different race (on the financial side) compared to the BOE race back in 2022. In April of 2022 (when we got our first look at the financial reports for all candidates) here is the combined money raised, spent and left on hand for the EIGHT candidates and BWM Slate that election cycle:

  • Total money raised (2022): $19,728.57
  • Total money spent (2022): $9,111.64
  • Total cash on hand (2022): $11,148.62

It looks like it is getting more and more expensive to run for school board seats in Carroll County.

Here is a look at the spreadsheet where I track this data (in case it is an easier side by side view of all the candidates and teams):

The candidate filing deadline is Friday, February 9, 2024 so additional candidates may enter this race. If no other candidates  do enter this race then all four of these candidates will advance through the Primary Election (May 14, 2024) and move on to the General Election (November 5, 2024).

If no other candidates enter this race between now and February 9th I would expect “Expenditures” to remain low for all of the above campaign finance entities for the early portion of their campaigns in 2024.

If other candidates do enter the race…then the race for Board of Education in Carroll County could get interesting for the Primary (obviously depending on the candidate(s)).

The next reporting deadline for campaign finance entities is April 9, 2024. See the schedule here:
